Planting a seed at DILG

The ASP National leaders Mona Magno-Veluz and Alex Cabason met with DILG Undersecretary Austere Panadero on 22 January 2015 to lay the groundwork for a strategic patrnership. Usec Panadero engaged in an open exchange on how a national advocacy group such as the Autism Society Philippines can best engage with DILG and the LGUs. He identified the League of Municipalities of the Philippines as an important partner in moving our agenda forward.

The meeting ended with action planning towards partnering with the National Police Academy to train policemen-to-be in dealing with citizens with autism, and creating a recommendation for central reporting of LGU-gathered data on disability incidence.
