Senator Nancy Binay's Statement for World Autism Awareness Day 2014

As we celebrate World Autism Awareness Day, let us reassure persons with autism and their families that they are not alone. We must let them know that they are accepted and understood.

I believe it is important that all of us take part in promoting support programs and systems in education and health that cater to the needs of people with autism. I have filed several bills that cater to people with disabilities (PWDs), including those with autism. Among these are Senate Bill No. 2008 or Tax Relief for Disabled Persons Act of 2013 which supports RA 7277 by providing financial assistance to PWDs through our tax system. Another is the Senate Bill No. 82 or Special Education Act of 2013 which institutionalizes a relevant educational system for youth with special needs, including children with autism.

Bigyan natin ng pagpapahalaga, ng pag-unawa at di pagsawaan silang mahalin. Sumasaludo po ako sa kanilang mga pamilya at mga kaibigan na walang-sawang nag-aaruga, umiintindi at nagmamahal. Mabuhay po kayo!
