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.

ASP PweDay on June 8: Sandwich Making

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” --Herman Cain

The Autism Society Philippines launches Wednesday "PweDay" --pronounced [pwe'-dey] this June 2016. The weekly activities aim to provide enrichment for teens and adults with autism who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PweDays will offer opportunities to learn new skills, to socialize with non-family members and to have fun.

On June 8, Wednesday, from 2pm to 5pm, we will be conducting a class on Sandwich Making.

Open Hand School of Applied Arts has partnered with ASP in the conduct of the class which would cover food hygiene, simple sandwich preparation, presentation and packaging. This hands-on class will be making Chicken Sandwich Spread, Monte Cristo Sandwiches and Burger Sliders.

Participants must bring their own hair net, apron, and closed shoes (no slippers or sandals please).

We would like to foster independence among our participants during the class. But if needed, a maximum of one (1) companion per PWA will be allowed in the training room.

"Adults with autism who are no longer in school end up in the fringes of society." Mona Magno-Veluz, ASP National President shares, "ASP is deeply invested in building a society where a individuals with autism be the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive and socially-accepted members of the community -- no matter where they are on the spectrum. By keeping PWAs active and engaged outside the home, we are also training the society to be more aware of what autism is, to be more appreciative of their gifts and to be more accommodating of their deficits."
