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.

National Disability Prevention Week 2013

Autism Society Philippines is celebrating this year's National Disability Prevention Week with the rest of the PWD community. The NDPR Week is held every July 17-23, and commencing on the birth date of Apolinario Mabini. It “highlights the nation’s efforts towards disability prevention and rehabilitation leading to the effective integration of persons with disabilities into mainstream of society as mandated under RA 727 otherwise known as the Magna Carta for Disabled persons.”

The theme on “Building an Inclusive and Non-Handicapping Environment for Persons with Disabilities” promotes principles and concepts relevant to inclusive development. The lead agency for this year is Department of Justice and they adopted the sub-theme, “Patatagin ang Karapatan sa Katarungan ng Mga Taong May Kapansanan," highlighting the importance of PWDs on their access to justice in order for them to be a part of inclusive society. The Incheon Strategy, which is built on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Biwako Millennium Framework for Action and Biwako Plus Five, will be highlighted in this year's celebration.

Members and friends of Autism Society Philippines are invited to join us in the following activities. Please call the ASP Office at 7-903-5496, if you are interested to join.
