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.

Unified DancExercise Party

Let’s get physical! That’s how we’d shout out for this activity held at the SM Sucat 3rd Floor Activity Area last May 24 at 10:00am. Dubbed as the “Unified DanceExercise Party” - the kids, the parents, siblings and therapists, not to mention the grandparents and caregivers, participated in the highly energetic dance party led by two very lively and well-coordinated dancers. We danced to the latest dance tunes and sweated it out while having so much fun. It was an activity meant to introduce us to Special Olympics Philippines, where children are able to participate, perform and achieve.

Truly, activities such as the DanceExercise Party and the Special Olympics inspire our special children to dream, perform beyond their current abilities and feel the triumph and fulfilment of achieving so much more. For the parents, it provides a sense of comfort that their kids are capable of aspiring and working hard to attain their goals, no matter how big or small it may be. The family is provided an opportunity to support the special children in this worthwhile endeavour.

Thank you to the children for doing their best and for a job well done and thank you to organizers and parents for providing a place for the children to be themselves and do more!
