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.

FSG Poster for March 2022

ASPs monthly family support group sessions bring together parents, siblings and other family members to talk about their journey in living with autism. Participants share their experiences and draw enlightenment and strength from others going through the same challenges.

The Autism Society Philippines -- together with this month's host, ASP Bacoor -- welcome members and non-members, bound by a common experience that is autism. We aspire to educate, empower and inspire to help build an Autism-OK Philippines.

IMPORTANT: Send us an email via autismphils@gmail.com if you have not received your Zoom credentials by Friday, 18 March at 1pm. Please do not share your link — only one device per name shall be accepted.

Our Moderators:

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.

Rowena Lagarde or Mommy Weng as she is fondly called, is a 42-year-old single mom of a 13-year-old boy on the spectrum. Her son was diagnosed when he was almost 3 years old. Raising him all by herself is a roller coaster of emotions. With the help of the people that became her support group, it has been a big help emotionally and mentally. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Mommy Weng was an Autism Work Project Manager in Cavite, training PWA to be job-ready with the support of the school and therapy centers and community. She is passionate about assisting parents of children on the spectrum, especially in times of need.
