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.

Save the Date for the Angels Walk for Autism 2020!


The Autism Society Philippines (ASP), together with SM Cares, will hold the annual Angels Walk for Autism on 26 January 2020, at the Mall of Asia Arena. Since it began in 2007, the walk continues to advocate for acceptance, accommodation and appreciation of Filipinos with autism towards an Autism-OK Philippines.

This year’s Angels Walk for Autism celebrates our nation's strong familial bonds that have pushed our advocacy from the boundaries of our nation, to the communities of the ASEAN and the world! We honor the 13,000 members of the Autism Society Philippines, across 97 chapters. "For the last 30 years, our chapters and members have built Autism-OK communities with the help of families they were born into and families they chose." said ASP National President Mona Magno-Veluz. "Our advocacy started with families and we celebrate this legacy as the public sector, the private sector and the general public become more accepting."

Save the date! Over 24,000 participants -- families, professionals, supporters from the government and private sectors, from the Philippines and overseas -- are expected to join the annual walk from the MOA Arena to the SM MOA Music Hall. The walk is held with the support of the MOA Arena, SM Mall of Asia, Association of Southeast Asian Nations, National Council of Disability Affairs, Asia-Pacific Development Center on Disability, ASEAN Autism Network and Decathlon.
