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.

St. Paul’s University Manila boasts that this is “the first Music Therapy Center in the Philippines, which will provide music therapy services for differently challenged children, adolescents, and adults. As with all music therapy sessions, the goals of the music therapy offered in the Center depend on the needs, abilities, and challenges of the clients. They can range from increased mobility to improved communication skills, to reduced anxiety or exploring personal issues. Through music therapy’s well planned, professional, and skillful use of music, St. Paul University Manila hopes to help improve the quality of life for people with disabilities of various kinds and to help children with developmental disabilities to reach their highest potentials.”
