Jo Palomares leads Family Support Group

Ms. Josephine Palomares welcomed 5 participants and facilitated the ASP Family Support Group held in Autism Society Philippines office in Quezon City last 18 April 2015. ASPs monthly family support group sessions bring together parents, siblings and other family members to talk about their journey in living with autism. Participants share their experiences and draw enlightenment and strength from others going through the same challenges.



Some shared their insights with us:
“Having an autism (sic) child is not different from a regular* children. But just analyzing and understanding the child with autism.”    *preferred term is neurotypical
“Experience and opinions of other parents that we shared really helped and encouraged us.”
“We can share our experience in our family’s journey with autism to (sic) other parents. And we can just learn from other parents.”
Please join us again next month for another family support group.
