A message from President Benigno S. Aquino


My warmest greetings to the Autism Society Philippines as you hold the Philippine National Autism Conference 2013.

Autism affects many Filipino families, and its prevalence here and worldwide calls for a more proactive campaign for awareness among our peoples. Coping with Autism Spectrum Disorder poses a difficult challenge to parents and family members; associations such as yours continue to lend them strength and guidance. Let this gathering serve as a laboratory of interaction and collaboration that provides you a support system and enlightens you on matters you seek to address. Hand in hand, let us build a nurturing environment that will further hone the skills and talents of ASD-afflicted members as they take their place as productive members of the community.

We in government share your aspiration for a just, equitably progressive Philippines that fully accepts, understands, and supports all citizens. Rest assured that we stand with you every step of the way, as we pursue programs and reforms that address the dynamic needs of our citizenry. We look forward to the success of this conference, and may this gathering yield a more driven and passionate collective that is sworn to protect and empower the vulnerable sectors of society.


BENIGNO S. AQUINO III
President
Republic of the Philippines
