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 Family Support Group for March 2014

ASPs monthly family support group sessions bring together parents, siblings and other family members to talk about their journey in living with autism. Participants share their experiences and draw enlightenment and strength from others going through the same challenges. We welcome members and non-members to this intimate gathering.

Marinette and Edgardo

Marinette Yan Aglipay was among the 11 founding mothers, back in 1989, of the Foundation for Autistic Children and Adults of the Philippines -- the precursor of what is now known as the Autism Society Philippines. She graduated cum laude from Maryknoll College with a degree in AB International Studies. She is the better half of retired Gen. Edgardo Aglipay, the former chief of the PNP. Her daughter Emmeline Aglipay serves as the DIWA partylist representative in Congress. The fight for the dignity of laborers, soldiers and the marginalized sectors (such as persons with disabilities) continue to be a family advocacy.

We encourage all ASP chapter leaders to join, not only to learn from Mrs. Aglipay's 30+ years experience in championing for her CWA Mariel; but also to hear how she keeps burning the "fire" to serve the community as a private individual.
