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.

CANROCK was held on 1 March 2014 at Robinson Galleria in Quezon City. The University of the Philippines Special Education Council's annual event was successful in making the celebration a means for individuals with special needs from different schools and institutions to showcase their talents.

The UPSEC believes that it is the ability, not the disability, that matters. Through the years, many have witnessed how the said event has changed this individuals' lives as well as viewing public's perspectives in light of this advocacy. Being given the opportunity to sing and dance in front of the audience, not only allows the individual with special needs fulfillment and self- determination; but also allows one to serenade, entertain and share the gift which he/she has been given.

St. Francis School VSA Arts Phil's., Inc., Independent Living Learning Center (ILLC), Joy Disability Mission Inc., Little Achievers, Pasay City North High School and the ASP Dreamgirls performed in this year’s program.

The ILLC Heartthrobs, a group composed of talented young men with autism, have performed in other advocacy events, including the Angels Walk for Autism 2014. The sought-after performers have showed that individuals with special needs can be multi-talented. They performed the song "Little Things," popularized by One Direction.

The ASP Dreamgirls who performed their danceable medley "Clarity/Titanium/Starships," have been featured in CANROCK since 2010. They aspire to give hope and to inspire people with special needs and their families through their performances.
