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.

Parents share their Son-Rise stories

Michelle Linchauco-Tambunting, early childhood educator, lecturer, and writer, came to ASP National Headquarters on August 19 to speak about the benefits of the Son-Rise Program before 75 parents and professionals. As a mother of Luis, a child diagnosed with autism, she had a great deal to share about the difficult times and the many challenges with her younger son and his condition. She has had critical and crucial setbacks of denial until her discovery of the Son-Rise Program. Luis not only became comfortable inside the home, but also enjoyed the new learning environment where he was placed alongside neurotypical children -- thriving, making friends, and having lots of fun in the true spirit of goodwill and camaraderie. She believes that the possibilities for every child are limitless for as long as family life reinforces acceptance of autism in the society.

The Son-Rise Program is only one of many approaches to helping families come to terms with the challenges brought by autism.
