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.

Teacher Ces Leads Family Support Group

ASP National Secretary Cecile Sicam welcomed participants for the Family Support Group held in Autism Society Philippines National Headquarters last 20 August 2016. ASPs monthly family support group sessions brings together parents, siblings and other family members to talk about their journey in living with autism. Participants share their experiences and draw enlightenment and strength from others going through the same challenges.

Participants shared their insights:

“Early intervention is very important; as a parent, compliance should be taught early to the child.”

“Other parents experience will help you pushed through to your plan.”

“I am not alone, I learned about social stories, I need to be more focus on what is needed.”
