The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

World Autism Awareness Day

The country will join the rest of the world in celebrating the 6th World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) on April 2, 2013 with the theme “Make the Rights Real of Persons with Autism”.
