UNTV’s Kaagapay and Autism Society Urge Awareness on Autism

05/18/2014

UNTV‘s public service program Kaagapaywith the Autism Society of the Philippines (ASP), called for autism awareness with a seminar held last May 4 during the show’s 7th anniversary celebration at La Verdad Christian College in Caloocan City. 

Erlinda “Dang” Uy-Koe, chairman emeritus of ASP, graced the event and educated attendees and viewers on how to deal with persons with autism. She also underscored mass media’s role in driving awareness regarding this mental disorder.

JKA Talent Management also sponsored the seminar, extending help in nurturing the natural talent of the youth and “special individuals.”

To prove that people with autism can function normally in society, Christian Caragayan and Clarence Cruz, two “advocates” with autism, rendered a song to the delight of the crowd.

Clarence is considered to have the highest IQ among persons with autism.

The seminar is one of many public service offerings of UNTV focusing on the differently-abled individuals in society.

Watch the seminar in one of Kaagapays episodes. Kaagapay airs every Tuesday at 7:00 PM.
