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.

Everyone was on fire, thinking of how they can be of help to the organization, considering different ways on how they can encourage others to join this group and be united in helping children with autism. This is a good sign that everybody is engaged, but as Tita Jan Peña stressed, consistency and perseverance are necessary for the chapter to continuously grow and be a success. The officers and members of this chapter know that the community should be aware and be cooperative for the progress of children with autism. Awareness and cooperation in the community are a big factor in teaching children with autism to be productive and to enhance their self worth. This is why these parents reactivated the ASP Lipa Chapter. This is to help children with autism to be recognized and loved not only by their family but also by the community.
