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.

Gear up for the Angels Walk for Autism 2018!

This year’s Angels Walk for Autism is celebrating the contributions of the many angels and heroes who make life better for families who live and love with autism!

What better way to get into the spirit of the walk than by dressing up as your very own original hero! Gear up with your family, schools and barkadas! Have fun with the concept — be inspired; but be original!

You can also join the “Autism Hero Costume Contest”! Using an Angels Walk shirt (from any year), dress yourself as an all ORIGINAL hero (no Marvel, DC derivatives please) and post a photo on your Facebook or Instagram timeline, with your superhero name and the hashtags #angelswalk2018 #autismhero. Don’t forget to tag ASP! The contest is open to all — young and old, individuals or groups. Deadline for entries is on 12 January 2018, Friday at 5pm. One winner be announced on 13 January 2018, Saturday and must be present at the Angels Walk for Autism finish line at the MOA Arena Music Hall to bring home the P10,000 cash prize!

What else can we do to celebrate the heroes in our lives? Prepare small tokens or letters for teachers, therapists, doctors, friends and family who have been everyday heroes to our loved ones with autism. At a specific point in the Angels Walk program, we will ask everyone to express their love for these amazing people with a thoughtful gesture. Let’s do this!

The Philippines is a more inclusive place because autism heroes inspire acceptance, accommodation and appreciation of individuals with autism. Thank you, Autism Heroes!
