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.

October 25 Saturday Seminar on Music as a Therapy Option

Music as a Therapy Option
9:30am – 12:00pm

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. Studies reveal that most individuals with autism spectrum disorder respond positively to music -- making music interventions potentially effective when used within a therapeutic context. Music Therapy can encourage social interactions, increase attention and communication attempts, reduce anxiety and improve body coordination. Our session speaker will share what it is, why and how it works, why it is both an art and science, how it is carried out and benefits individuals with special needs.

Our speaker, Ms. Sol Bautista

Ma. Solinda Garcia-Bautista, a senior management executive and management consultant of 28 years with top global firms, is pursuing Music Therapy graduate studies to provide an extraordinary potent, therapeutic option for families with exceptional children. Inspired by her 20-year-old middle child with autism who grew up with music all around him, Sol is amongst the first batch of graduate students 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.

Sol concurrently gave chase to Business Administration & Accountancy at the University of the Philippines and Music at Sta. Isabel College, delivered her piano graduation recital and garnered eighth place in the CPA boards. She helped transform businesses through technology as a consultant locally and abroad on mission-critical engagements in New York, Chicago, Tokyo and Hong Kong, and as a senior executive for a multinational financial firm. She concertizes when time permits, as a soloist and with her family.
