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 Alfonso hosts Free Therapy Sessions

ASP Alfonso was blessed on 21 September 2014 for being able to host free therapy sessions held at Sanghiyang, Alfonso Central Elem. School, through the support of the Persons with Disability Affairs Office (PDAO) of the Municipality of Alfonso.

Ms. Janette Peña, Mr. Evert Malapad and therapists with educational materials

We are very thankful to Mr. Evert Malapad, active ASP parent member and SPED practitioner. Through his kind effort, he brought in a team of occupational and speech therapists to our municipality of Alfonso. They are T. Liza Gozo (OT), T. Michelle Rafols (OT), T. Joie Brillantes (ST) and T. Julie Rimanado (ST). The team also donated educational materials to the SPED Program of Alfonso Central Elementary School, where most parents are ASP members. About 36 children with special needs from this school and the community were given assessment and recommendation services.

Mam Jan Peña of ASP National was also there for giving us support. She also donated activity books for student and teacher reference. We hope this is just a start of a journey towards ensuring quality life of all children wih special needs. Once again in behalf of all parents here in Alfonso, thank you!
