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.

We aim to equip parents with the knowledge and skills to confidently care for their neurodiverse child. The program includes a limited number of online occupational, speech assessment and therapy sessions within a six month period for a limited number of beneficiaries.
