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 Amazing MOA Parade of Lights

Children with autism and their families from the ASP Pasay Chapter were privileged to be invited to SM Mall of Asia last 29 November 2014 to a front-seat view in the celebration of Parade of Lights 2014.

The children truly enjoyed the experience of watching the parade as different cartoon characters and floats marched in their colorful, lighted costumes, in tune with the Christmas carols in the background. Even with the signs of impending rain, you could still hear the audience shouting "WOW!" whenever a new float passed by. Nobody moved from their spots until the culmination of the show. It was truly an amazing experience for the kids and even the adults enjoyed the event!
