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 UP-CAMP awarded IBF grant

ASP UP-CAMP Manila, through the mentoring of Mr. Ranil Sorongon and Ms. Carmel Almendrala of ASP National, was formally awarded a grant by the International Bazaar Foundation to execute their “Early Steps Project.” A formal awarding ceremony took place last 10 September 2013 at the Department of Foreign Affairs Building, along Roxas Boulevard in Manila.

“Early Steps Project” community-based rehabilitation project strengthens the chapter and empowers neighbors to take control over the therapy and education of children with autism, through:
- Provision of basic therapy and tutorials to children with autism, who belong to the economically challenged families in the City of Manila and nearby places.
- Provision of information and skills to parents of children with autism and volunteers on how to manage children with autism.
- Provision of opportunity to the officers, members and volunteers of ASP UP-CAMP Manila to conduct basic therapy and education services for children with autism.
- Build a family support system where parents, siblings and CWAs who are part of the Chapter are inspired and motivated by their peers.
- Working together to acquire additional support from institutions and non-government organizations.

The International Bazaar is an annual event, led by the Diplomatic and Consular Corps and local concessionaires are sold. The IBF creates a global shopping experience for Filipinos; while providing services to local communities through the capital generated.
