ASP PWAy Day on July 20: Sensory-Friendly Movie

"Movies are like an expensive form of therapy for me." Tim Burton

The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PWAy Day" aims to provide enrichment for children with autism who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PWAy Days will offer opportunities to learn new skills, to socialize with non-family members and to have fun.

On July 20, Wednesday, from 2pm to 5pm, we will be conducting a sensory-friendly movie viewing. To provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for our special audience, ASP will allow bringing up the lights, turning down sound volume, allowing families/PWAs to bring in their own snacks and welcoming audience members to get up, dance, walk, shout, sing, go in and out of the room.

This is open to PWAs of all ages. A P20 donation per head is requested. PWAs may bring their food to share.

"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."
