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.

Seminar on Preparing for Employment

So What’s Next: Preparing for Employment

This is an important first step in understanding the adolescent’s strengths and challenges within different types of work. Strengths can be built upon and challenges minimized before work experiences in the community begin. Know this and more with this training.
