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 Economic Empowerment Poster


The next ASP Leadership Town Hall will focus on economic empowerment opportunities for chapters, parents and persons on the autism spectrum under several ASP programs. Let’s discuss existing programs such as the ASP Autism Works, the ASP AutisMALL, the ASP NegosyAU and explore the potential of more upcoming initiatives. We will also discuss how ASP chapters can develop fund-generation activities that are effective and compliant to ASP governance standards. Mona Magno-Veluz, Helen Cheng and Cenin Faderogao will be our resources for this interactive session.

This online event is EXCLUSIVELY for ASP Chapter leaders in good standing, with updated memberships.

Our Speakers:

Mona Veluz serves as the National President of the Autism Society Philippines. She received degrees in Business Administration, Applied Economics and Strategic Marketing from the University of the Philippines Diliman, University of Asia and the Pacific and the London School of Business. Drawing from her experience as a corporate communications and recruitment professional, she helped grow the national advocacy initiatives such as the 1Pangako, ASP Angel Corps, A-OK Philippines campaigns and the widely-successful ASP Autism Works economic empowerment initiative.

She speaks publicly on disability advocacy, leadership, and genealogy. Mona is a wife and a mom to three kids. Her eldest, Carl, is an adult on the spectrum who is active in the community -- volunteering, working on his entrepreneurial ventures and finishing an architecture course.

Helen Cheng is a current ASP National Trustee and headed the AutisMALL Pilipinas, a virtual market place for products and services by and for persons on the autism. As a neophyte trustee, she has contributed a lot for ways and means during ASP major events - Angels Walk, National Autism Consciousness Week celebration, World Autism Awareness Day, and others.

Her practical approach to getting things done made a lot of these events easier to execute. Helen graduated from University of Santo Tomas with a Degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce major in Business Administration. She is currently working with her husband’s family business and at the same time a fulltime mom to her four children including Kenrick Albert, a 25 year old artist with autism. Helen's generous heart includes sharing Kenrick's talents in any way helpful to ASP.

Cenin Faderogao, the “Kuya” or “Sir Cenin” of the ASP’s Pweday every Saturday afternoon, is an advocate of children and youth with disability, and a pro-active agent on their rights and welfare. As Program Coordinator of ASP, Cenin brings unique perspectives gained from his six years’ experience working with the parents and PWA empowering them to unleash the untapped potential of ASP members and program beneficiaries. Using real-world examples, Cenin sheds light on how the invaluable talent each person brings to ASP and can positively impact its mission.
