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.

Adbokasya sa Social Media!

"Adbokasya sa Social Media" is a dynamic event designed to empower individuals with disabilities and those who care for them to leverage their personal social media presence as a tool for positive change. Whether passionate about social justice, environmental causes, or community initiatives, this event will provide practical insights and strategies to amplify your voice and influence through various social media platforms. We also aspire to widen our circle of disability rights allies. 

This will be held in commemoration of the National Disability Rights Week. The event is a partnership between the Autism Society Philippines, the Local Government of Quezon City, the National Council on Disability Affairs, and SM Cares. Expected participants include members of the disability community, NGOs helping Filipinos with disabilities, government agencies, and student organizations.
