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.

Caryll's Special Debut

Whoever says that life stops and cannot be full with autism has yet to see photos of Caryll Angela Alvarez's debut celebration. Caryll and her family are active members and supporters of Autism Society Philippines.

Caryll's 18th birthday party last 16 November 2014 was a celebration of life and love. Unlike the usual events where guests just attend on the actual event, this one required preparation and practice in consideration of the special needs of our children with autism. They had to adjust to the environment, to learn the dance and for Caryll, to play the piano. The support of Caryll's family, teachers and friends was indeed overwhelming as they spared precious time to make sure this event would be memorable for her.

Caryll is every inch a woman now; but her childlike innocence remains. This is her and our PWA's special gift. They see life from a different perspective and is certainly cannot be judged as less.

You are such an inspiration, Caryll. We have so much to learn from you and your family on how to face life's challenges and celebrate all the experiences it brings.

God bless you and your family! Happy 18th birthday from your ASP family!
