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.

Cavite Braces for 5th ASP Sibs Camp

All systems GO! for ASP Siblings Camp Cavite on May 26-28, 2016. ASP families are thrilled to escort the participants to Andrea’s Hidden Villa, a wondrous and PWD-accommodating and friendly resort in Patutong Malaki North, Tagaytay City, Cavite. This year’s twenty campers promise to be an exciting mixture of impassioned Ate’s and Kuya’s from Cavite cities and towns of Carmona, Bacoor, Dasmariñas, Molino, Gen. Trias, Silang and Mendez, plus hi-energy sibs from Manila and Muntinlupa Chapters.

Sibs Camp Cavite is a yearly coming together of siblings of PWA’s of different ages whose families are active ASP members. Since 2010, the summer activity has served as a venue for siblings bonding, self-expression, enriching perspectives and directions, and inculcating compassion, advocacy and leadership.

We thank all the parents who promptly responded to this invitation and did not think twice to motivate their children to engage in the Siblings Camp. We hope to continue making Sibs Camp a must-join activity for every sibling every summer, for it educates, transforms and empowers siblings in their life’s journey with a brother or sister with autism.

We are also heartily grateful for the support of steadfast partners and friends who helped to kick-off the 2016 Sibs Camp (5th in Cavite): Teacher My Sorongon, ASP’s Siblings Camp Facilitator; Mr. Jing Caringal, Head of PDAO, Tagaytay City; Mrs. Romana Bough, long-time ASP angel; and JOLLIBEE - Mendez Crossing Tagaytay! Your spirit behind Sibs Camp Cavite is our strength! From the organizing team of 2016 Sibs Camp Cavite, Salamat and Mabuhay!
