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.

The Lights Up, Sounds Down project of SM Cares offers sensory-friendly movie experiences that include individuals on the autism spectrum in the cinema setting. To avoid adverse sensory sensations - lights are turned up and sounds are turned down during said movie showing. SM Cinemas will do away with advertisements and trailers to cut on waiting time; and allow families with children on the spectrum to bring their own snacks. Standing up, dancing, walking, cheering, and singing will also be understood by the cinema management.

This movie treat is for children on the spectrum of active ASP family members, including the self-advocates. Each moviegoer on the spectrum will be accommodated with maximum of 2 companions, or a total of 3 free tickets.

Please register below until June 29 12noon. Seats are limited - first come, first served.
