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.

The Sibling Factor

ASP Sta. Rosa had a simple yet fun time with some of the siblings of its members last 14 September 2014 at the Erolin residence at Tagapo, Sta. Rosa which is currently the registered office address of ASP Sta. Rosa.

The activity aimed to help the siblings understand their brother or sister with autism and try activities like shooting rings, following patterns and matching pictures with words that they can play with their siblings. We had story telling and we used the book "Spinning" written by Teacher Irene Sarmiento, written from the perspective of a sibling. Everyone enjoyed the simple but sumptuous merienda and the siblings were given prizes for their participation. This was a way for them to also learn how reward system can make their brother or sister with autism get motivated.
