A message from Engineer Bien C. Mateo


We would like to congratulate the Autism Society Philippines for holding another successful conference. May this conference touch your lives as it has touched ours at SM Supermalls.

We will never forget how the Autism Society Philippines helped us in making our mall environment as inclusive as possible, making it a mall for all.

We acknowledge that many efforts have been made. We have been your partners in making the communities aware of the autism spectrum. But the work does not stop there. After awareness, we have to commit as a society to provide a good quality of life for everyone including persons living with autism. We have to allow them to dream, like any one of us. We have to give them respect, as we all want others to respect us. We must give them the same opportunities, as we would also want to be offered the same.
The tasks at hand are greater than ever. The challenges are harder than before. We must all step up for all the one million families in our country who are living with autism today.

We thank the parents, the teachers, the classmates, the care-givers, the siblings, the neighbours of our friends living with autism. You deserve the honour and respect for the support and encouragement that bring out the beauty in the persons living with autism.

We will continue to walk with you in the path towards an inclusive society for all.

Engr. BIEN C MATEO
