Los Baños govt vows to respect and protect people with autism

Jan 25, 2022 @ 10:47

The Los Baños municipal government is joining the observance of the 26th Philippine National Autism Consciousness Week and has pledged to advance the rights of people with autism.

The Los Baños government said the event is intended to promote public awareness about autism and respect for people with this condition.

It is also meant to stop people from making fun of autism or using it as a derogatory term, it said.

“Maging ang mga indibidwal na may Autismo ay kapareho rin ng iba na mayroong dignidad, pantay na karapatan, may kakayahang kumilos gamit ang sariling kakayahan at makatulong sa pagiging produktibong mamamayan,” it said on Facebook.

It shared a video where it pledged to pursue these goals.

“Ang ating Pamahalaang Bayan ay nangangakong kikilos para mahinto ang paggamit ng autismo bilang kutya o katatawanan, sa salita at sa gawa! Isusulong ang tunay na pagtanggap, pagkalinga at pagpapahalaga sa mga Pilipinong may kapansanan, sa tulong ng Maykapal.

Samahan natin sila sa adbokasiyang ito. Kahit nasaan man kayo ngayon, ating banggitin at isapuso ang naturang pangako,” it said.
