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.

Music Therapy For Individuals With Autism
1:30 – 3:30pm

Studies reveal that most children, teens and adults with autism spectrum disorder respond positively to music -- making music a potentially powerful therapeutic tool. Music interventions used within a therapeutic relationship for individuals with ASD have encouraged social interactions, increased attention and communication attempts, reduced anxiety, and improved body coordination. Though well-established as an allied health profession in other countries, music therapy has yet to be better known in the Philippines as a therapeutic option, and thus our session speaker will enlighten us on what it is, why and how it works, why it is an art and science at the same time, how it is carried out and how it benefits individuals with special needs.

Ma. Solinda Garcia-Bautista is amongst the first batch of graduate students learning Music Therapy at the St. Paul University Manila College of Music and the Performing Arts, a Center of Excellence for Music pioneering Music Therapy programs in the Philippines starting 2013. Sol concurrently gave chase to Business Administration and Accountancy at the University of the Philippines and Music at Sta. Isabel College. After delivering her piano graduation recital and garnering eighth place in the CPA boards, she plunged into an intense 28-year corporate career in Information Technology with top global firms. She helped transform businesses through technology as a consultant working locally and abroad, including mission-critical engagements in New York, Chicago, Tokyo and Hong Kong, and as a senior executive for a large global financial firm. Sol concertizes whenever time permits.
