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.

Mr. Alejandro P. Cabason, ASP former trustee led the Family Support Group last 23 September 2017 at the ASP National Headquarters. He shared the struggles he faced with his sixteen year old son.

Being a government employee, Sir Alex highlighted how parents should take up autism advocacy and present our needs to the private sector and to government towards the development programs, considerate of families who live with autism. He encouraged parents to be updated on laws that affect our community. Parents were most concerned about challenges in accessing therapy services, aggressive behavior despite therapy and disability rights.
