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 PueDay for the months of January and February

Everyone has a mountain to climb and autism has not been my mountain, it has been my opportunity for victory. --- Rachel Barcellona

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 January 8 and 15 - we will make a Flaglets that we will use in our Angels Walk for Autism 2020 in Mall of Asia Arena. This will help to develop fine motor skills and creativity. There will be a simple contest, more flaglets you make, more suprise prizes you get. Prepare a P50 donation when you get on-site.

"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."
