ALYANA–A Study of Autism in the Philippines described by current President of ASP, Ms. Jan Pena as “…a touching reminder that with the growing presence of autism in our midst, our society is faced with these glaring challenges: first, acceptance, understanding, unconditional love for persons with autism; and next, opportunities, services and support for affected individuals and their families..” will be shown to Cavite residents next week on February 26, through the initiative of Autism Society Philippines-Alfonso Chapter led by Ms. Jeanette Vidallon in collaboration with the College of Education, Special Education Department of Cavite State University.

The Cavite State University is located in Indang, Cavite. Over five years ago, I first went there to show my docu “TIGA ISLA.” It is about the lives of Filipinos and Americans on pre-war Corregidor Island, my father’s birthplace. The showing was sponsored by the Philippine National Historical Society.
