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.

Celebrating ASP Servant Leaders

The social media broadcast of Angels Walk for Autism 2021 ushered a new standard for our evolving advocacy. Serendipitously held on Easter Sunday, the event is a milestone for our advocacy -- which needs to adapt and must be reborn into "Generation-C".

With many events happening on-line instead of face-to-face, we are aware of what we have lost; but are still thankful for what we have gained. For the first time, the newly-elected trustees of the Autism Society Philippines cannot all immediately travel to Metro Manila -- as there is no need to! They will be driving the ASP leadership from various provinces in and outside Metro Manila -- Rizal, Cavite, Isabela and Davao.

Immediately after the induction, the trustees formalized the transition in a bienvenida + despedida, with the outgoing trustees welcoming the new batch. The outgoing ASP Trustees (2019-2020) are Grace Adviento, Carmel Almendrala, Imee Alviso, Helen Cheng, Evelyn Go, Donna Lim, Mona Magno-Veluz, Joy Ofrecia, Marivic Ramos, Cecilia Sicam, and Perlita So. Carmel Almendrala was honored as the longest-serving ASP board trustee. Tita Carmel served as a trustee from 1996 to 2020 -- 24 years!
