The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. The ASP has been in the forefront of providing services and training to persons on the autism spectrum and their families. 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 PueDay for the month of October, November and December

“Rigid academic and social expectations could wind up stifling a mind that, while it might struggle to conjugate a verb, could one day take us to distant stars.” – Temple Grandin

The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PueDay" aims to provide enrichment for teens and adults on the autism spectrum who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PueDays 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 Persons on the autism spectrum members, 16 years old and above.


On October 2 - we will start our PueDay for this month - a KarAOKe session for the Persons on the autism spectrum. KarAOKe is a way of dining interactive entertainment. 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 October 9 - Mooncake Dice Game - also known as Pua Tiong Chiu or Bo Bing Chinese dice game traditionally played as part of the celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The game known as Bo Bing (lit. gambling for cakes) in China, traditionally involves six dices and a China bowl with 63 different sized mooncakes as prizes for the winning players. This activity will develop socialization and communications among the Persons on the autism spectrum. Please wear proper clothes and don't forget the P100 donation.

On October 16 - we will have Candle Making. Learn how to easily make your own homemade candles. Candles are a great way to bring light and fragrance into a room, and making them yourself is a fun craft project. This activity is a great way to get those young ones more interested in their own creativity. A really great way to express yourself with fun crafts that are both easy and fulfilling to do. Bring your scissors, extra shirt and P200 donation.

"Persons on the autism spectrum 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 Persons on the autism spectrum 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."
