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.

ASP Family Support Group for February 2018

ASPs monthly family support group sessions bring 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. We welcome members and non-members to this intimate gathering. New ASP members are encouraged to join.

Our facilitator for this month is Ms. Mary Janette Peña. Mam Jan is one of the tireless movers behind the meteoric rise in the numbers of ASP chapters nationwide, most significantly in Cavite. Jan’s commitment to the national autism advocacy has earned -- together with her husband Al and kids Thea (who is now the ASP Dasmariñas President), Muneer (an adolescent with autism) and Milli -- the coveted Jollibee Family Values Award in 2015.

Jan is also actively involved in the El Shaddai Ministry. Tita Jan is often called “Gobernadora” by ASP leaders. After becoming the founding chapter president of ASP Bacoor in 2006, Jan proceeded to building thirteen more chapters in Cavite province from 2007 to 2016. By 2008, the Gobernadora pursued chapter building outside of Cavite province, and was instrumental in forming 21 more chapters nationwide. In between chapter building, Jan also served as Board Trustee of ASP National From 2008 to 2016. But in 2017, Jan started overseeing the society’s operations as the new ASP Executive Director.
