This year, my major advocacy is for Autism Awareness. While this may not be the sole theme of this site, I hope I will be able to raise awareness and perhaps feature products, programs and services that will benefit individuals with autism.
Estimates show that approximately 1 in 150 children is diagnosed with autism. Although more prevalent in males than females, autism can affect anyone: it knows no gender, age, no race, nationality, and socioeconomic status. As such, the Philippines is not excempt from this disorder.
Finding resources for individuals with autism may be more difficult here as compared to other countries that are more inclusive towards this special population. It is my desire to help build bridges for and between individuals and their families living with autism and services available in our country by hosting a directory of individuals, organizations and the like that offer special services.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform me of services you offer and/or avail of.
