EDEIP visited three barangays in
Barangay Bel-Air with the theme “Non-Handicapping Environment: A Key to PWDs inclusion”. Barangay Bel-Air was headed by Brgy Captain Victor Gomez Jr. who also welcomed the speakers and the participants. The closing remark was given by Kagawad Malyne Lorayes.

ASP National President, Ms Grace Adviento said in one of her interviews, “The earlier the parents know that their child has this condition, the earlier they will be given proper education/intervention. Denying it will not do their children any good, and overlooking this will just delay the development of their child.”
