ASP PWAy Day for the month of November

“Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.” ―Peg Bracken

The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PWAy Day" aims to provide enrichment for teens and adults with autism who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PWAy Days will offer opportunities to learn new skills, to socialize with non-family members and to have fun. This will be every Wednesday, from 2pm to 4pm at ASP Headquarters. This is open to all PWAs, 16 years old and above.



On November 7 - we will have KarAOKe session for the Adults with Autism. Singing lowers stress levels. This activity will releases stored muscle tension and decreases the levels of a stress hormone of the adults with autism. Singing improves mental alertness: Improved blood circulation and an oxygenated blood stream allow more oxygen to reach the brain.

On November 14 - we will Sensory Friendly Movie. To provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for our special audience, ASP will allow bringing up the lights, turning down sound volume, allowing families/PWAs to bring in their own snacks and welcoming audience members to get up, dance, walk, shout, sing, go in and out of the room. Prepare a P100 donation when you get on-site

On November 21 - we will have Parol Making. Adult with Autism will learn how to make a simple parol in time for the Christmas Season. This will help to develop fine motor skills and creativity. Chosen work may be display as Christmas decoration at ASP Headquarters. Bring your own scissor, glue, pencil and prepare a P200 donation when you get on-site

On November 28 - Adults with Autism will prepare Christmas Decor Making. Adult PWAs will learn how to make different Decor for the Christmas Season. This activity will highlights the creativity of the PWAs and freely express themselves in order to develop their natural artistic abilities. It promotes communication, emotional growth and sensory integration while also fostering social interaction in a fun setting. Bring your own scissor, glue, pencil and prepare a P200 donation when you get on-site


"Adults with autism who are no longer in school end up in the fringes of society." Mona Magno-Veluz, ASP National President shares, "ASP is deeply invested in building a society where a individuals with autism be the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive and socially-accepted members of the community -- no matter where they are on the spectrum. By keeping PWAs active and engaged outside the home, we are also training the society to be more aware of what autism is, to be more appreciative of their gifts and to be more accommodating of their deficits."
