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 Parañaque created

The first set of elected officers of ASP’s 68th and newest chapter was inducted by Fr. Rodel Paulino, the parish priest of the Presentation of Christ Jesus Church, last 18 March 2014 at The Communicare Therapy Center for Children, Inc. in BF Homes, Parañaque. Forty-five members -- mostly parents, therapists, teachers were present to witness the occasion. Guest of honor Ms. Janette Peña, ASP National President, gave an inspiring orientation about ASP as an organization and it’s role to the autism community. Mr. Evert Malapad, former President of ASP Metro South Chapter, gave some advice on how to make the chapter an instrument to help the autism community in the south. He emphasized that with passion and determination, everything is doable.

First set of elected officers of ASP’s 68th and newest chapter, ASP Parañaque, was inducted 18 last March 2014.

The newly inducted officers are Imelda C. Alviso (President), Diana Jeanne M. Roque (Vice President), Mary Annie L. Bagatsing and Karen Kate T. Vela (co-Secretary), Ma. Cristina V. Ang (Treasurer ), Brenda Q. Aihara (Auditor) and Leilani D. Grimares, Magdalen T. Olivet Ngo, Lagrimas M. Corpus and Roland Rhonnel M. Suarez (Advisers).

ASP Parañaque Chapter officers and members of the organization paid a courtesy visit to Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez at Parañaque Municipal Hall last 31 March 2014 to introduce Autism Society Philippines.

The Mayor warmly received the group and offered the following support: free venue at the city hall for a monthly meeting every 2nd Tuesday of the month; free use of the city hall conference room for chapter sponsored seminars; financial assistance for future ASP Parañaque seminars and activities; the use of the city hall as a temporary address; and the integration of ASP with other PWD programs of Parañaque.

The newly-forged partnership between the ASP Parañaque Chapter and the Parañaque Municipal Office under Mayor Edwin Olivarez marks the beginning of Parañaque City as a better place for children with autism and their families.
