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.

Join this learning event exclusively for ASP members! The Crafting a Home Program webinar aims to provide understanding on the importance of family involvement and follow through at home in the intervention program for children on the autism spectrum. Participants are expected to bring home practical tips on how to help their children become productive, functional and independent members of the family and the community.

Resource Speaker:

Ms. Joyla Ofrecia wears eyeglasses smiling and has long hair two inches below her shoulder. She wears green ASP uniform and stands in front of ASP Hugot Wall.

MS. MARIA JOYLA OFRECIA empowers families in the care and instruction of children and youth on the autism spectrum, as a valuable resource to the ASP Early Detection and Early Intervention Program, ASP Education Committee and the ASP HOMEpowerment Program. She organized and mentors the ASP chapters towards good governance and sustainability as the ASP South Luzon Cluster Head.

Her eldest is Juris, a young man on the autism spectrum. She has been a hands-on mother and for almost 15 years, has been implementing home intervention programs along with other center-based interventions not just for her own son but also for other children on the spectrum.

The ASP Education and Empowerment Program serves as a platform to educate Filipino parents and professionals on the various interventions, modalities and theories surrounding Autism Spectrum Disorder, through monthly seminars and workshops.
