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 PweDay for the months of March, April and May

“Autism doesn’t have to define a person. Artists with autism are like anyone else: They define themselves through hard work and individuality.” --- Adrienne Bailon, Artist

Our Pweymates during the Tye-Dye activity

The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PweDay" aims to provide enrichment for teens and adults on the autism spectrum who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PweDays 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 March 4 - we will do DIY Swirly Tie-Dye T-Shirts. Tie-dye is characterized by the use of bright, saturated primary colors and bold patterns. Tie-dye can be used to create a wide variety of designs on fabric, from standard patterns such as the spiral, peace sign, diamond, and the marble effect to beautiful works of art. This is a really fun activity to work on with your adult on the spectrum. You can incorporate color identification, fine motor skills, following directions, sequencing, and more! Please bring white cotton shirt, rubber gloves and 1 hanger. Prepare a P200 donation when you get on-site. Wear appropriate clothes, no sando, no sandals or slippers.

Due to the “State of Public Health Emergency” Code Red declaration, our weekly PweDays are cancelled. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our attendees. We will resume our Wednesday activities on May 2020. Please stay tuned for announcements. Thank you for your understanding. #AutismOKPH

"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."
