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.

Meet the new ASP Cluster Heads

The Autism Society Philippines is composed of 13,000 individuals, spread across 100 chapters in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, as of May 2021. In 2018, we established chapter clusters -- North Luzon, South Luzon, VisMin and Metro Manila/Rizal -- to ensure ASP is able to support our growing community.


From left to right, meet the Cluster Heads who will be helping nurture our growing network of chapters nationwide:

Julia Moll is the Cluster Head for North Luzon and is a National Trustee. This entrepreneur built the autism advocacy in her community in Santiago, Isabela, through the establishment of a strong connection with the local government and the implementation of creative, relevant events and projects for the benefit children and youth on the autism spectrum and their families -- as a past chapter President.

Joyla "Joy" Ofrecia is the Cluster Head for South Luzon and is a National Trustee. This mother of two is an ASP National Trustee and Program Director of Noah Autism Resource Center. She has earned her Master’s Degree in Special Education from Angeles University Foundation. She conducts training to parents and professionals and orientations to different organizations and institutions on autism.

Ritchelle Joy "Momay" Donaire is the Cluster Head for Visayas and Mindanao, and is a National Trustee. This public servant developed the readiness of young jobseekers on the autism spectrum and nurtured partnerships with transition education centers in Davao City, as the Project Manager of the ASP Autism Works program in her province.

Lorenzo "LJay" Sumulong is the Cluster Head for Metro Manila and Rizal and is a National Trustee.  LJay built the autism advocacy in his community in Antipolo, Rizal, through the establishment of a strong connection with the local government and the implementation of creative, relevant events and projects for the benefit children and youth on the autism spectrum and their families -- as the ASP chapter president, as a former city councilor and a well-respected businessman in the community. 

The Autism Society Philippines aspires to be responsive to the needs of the membership and usher projects and programs that are relevant to PWAs and families who live with autism -- wherever they are in the country.
