A message from Janette I. Peña


The last 25 years in the history of autism in the Philippines has been both an educative and empowering experience in Filipino families living with autism. From nothing, we are now a legionary movement driven by fire, coming together to reach and learn from each other, embracing positive and hands on approaches in rearing children with autism, and moving synergistically with an entire sector that upholds the rights of the disadvantaged in the society.

The 13th Philippine National Conference attests to the solidarity of families, allied professionals, government, corporate and media in creating an accepting, friendly and supportive environment for persons with autism.It is an achievement that we must carry on for the good and interest of an increasing number of children living within the spectrum. The challenge of autism is for life, and Autism Society Philippines stands pat to help our nation overcome.

I thank all members and partners of ASP who have faithfully heeded the call to minister to our advocacy and help make a difference. To all the participants of the 13th PNAC, thank you for being with us in claiming HOPE for a nation.

To the cause!

MARY JANETTE I. PEÑA
President
Autism Society Philippines
