The Autism Society Philippines- Diliman Chapter gave a short lecture on Rights of Persons with Disabilities to the Special Education faculty of New Era University last 05 July 2013, in celebration of the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week.

SpEd Educators of New Era College and ASPs Jo Palomares
Josephine Palomares gave the lecture to around 18 teachers of the SPED Department, using the CD “Educating Children with Disabilities using the Digital Talking Books”. The CD is a project of ASP funded by Australian Aid. It teaches the three basic rights of the child via learning stories using the DAISY format that runs on AMIS platform.

ASP hopes that more and more children with disabilities will learn their basic rights through the help of their teachers. The SPED teachers, with their Directress, Ms. Penelope Sandoval and coordinator, Ms. Liezel Vargas were very receptive and recognized the effectivity of utilizing Daisy to teach other lessons to their special kids.
