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 National NMVO held in June 2016

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." --Gandhi

The ASP National New Member and Volunteer Orientation is a monthly welcome for all new members and volunteers to guide them on how they can immerse themselves in the autism advocacy ASP pioneered in; and on how ASP can make a positive impact on their lives through its projects and programs.

NMVO Group with Ms. Mona

ASP National President Mona Veluz welcomed 27 participants (including 2 PWAs) to this month’s orientation last 11 June 2016. New member and volunteers (some, not so new) from Cavite to Bulacan joined the seminar. Ms. Mona covered autism definitions and myths as well as practical ways to deal with persons with autism. She introduced ASP and its many initiatives and highlighted ways people could contribute. The session ended with a group work on what ASP can improve on and what projects they would like to propose and work on.

Some of the participants shared:

“Orienting parents like us help so much!” -- Catrina C.

“It is an excellent avenue to meet people from different walks of life who have the same advocacies ...” --Andrea R.
