National Family Week is celebrated the the United Kingdom from August 25-31 this year. The Filipino autism community is one in celebrating family life and encouraging families to spend more time together, highlighting the important role families play in society; and in raising of happy, well-adjusted children.
This KOEmposition is a KOEllaboration of KOEple JOE and DANG for the school yearbook of their eldest KOEboy GIO, then 7yo now 20. Mama Dang, ASP Chair Emeritus, has been serving the Filipino autism community for almost 20 years now. A much sought after speaker, she uses this KOEmposition as the KOEnceptual framework in sharing her family's journey and advocacy, updating it regularly as Gio reaches new milestones, and even after Papa Joe's passing.
