Perlita So leads family support group

ASP Auditor Ms. Perlita So facilitated a session with seven parents of children with autism at the ASP office in Quezon City last 22 November 2014. ASPs monthly family support group sessions bring together parents, siblings and other family members to talk about their journey in living with autism.


As usual, the participants shared their experiences and drew enlightenment and strength from others going through the same challenges:
“As my special child grows older, the more I cater to him. I learned a lot from the experience of the other parents in handling children with special needs.”

“I’m not alone in all these challenges. I can learn from other people’s experiences.”

“Children with autism need more understanding and more patience. Acceptance is key.”
