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.

ASP joins Kamustahan 2013

The Autism Society Philippines joined the annual Kumustahan Seminar series of Archdiocese of Manila Ministry on Persons with Disabilities (AMMPD) this year. The seminar started on 13 July 2013 at St. Anthony de Padua Parish in Manila and was held in succeeding Saturdays of the month in different parishes in Metro Manila. The seminar intended to equip the churches’ volunteers and PWD ministries in proper dealing with persons with disabilities. It also talks about the world, plight and Christian intervention for PWD’s. The speakers from ASP included Ranil Sorongon, Jan Peña, Raphael Torralba, Tina Borneo, Jennette Rodriguez, and Nina Almeda.

AMMPD is the former Archdiocese of Manila Office for PWD Ministry and it is now under the umbrella of the Commission on Social Services and Development of the Archdiocese of Manila. For the benefit of PWDs, they provide religious, moral and values formation; offer skills training to prospective care-givers and catechists; provide assistance through referral to other agencies for rehabilitation, training and employment; offer counseling and human services and advocate awareness of PWDs’ presence, roles and rights in the Archdiocesan and in the parochial level.
