Around 200 students with disabilities from Rizal’s 2nd District received digital tablets to help fulfill their distance learning needs.
Rep. Fidel Nograles personally handed over the gadgets on Monday.
“Kaya patuloy tayong nakaagapay sa ating mga PWD upang masigurado ang kanilang patuloy na pagaaral.”
“Alam natin na napakaraming pagsubok ngayon na hinaharap ng mga batang may kapansanan sa kanilang online o distance learning,” said Nograles.
“Kaya patuloy tayong nakaagapay sa ating mga PWD upang masigurado ang kanilang patuloy na pagaaral,” the neophyte lawmaker said.
The lawmaker revealed that he plans to expand and institutionalize a program to help disabled students cope with the various challenges posed by distance learning.
“Makikipag-pulong po tayo sa mga special education stakeholders nang mas maintindihan natin kung paano mapupunan ang mga pagkukulang at maging mas makabuluhan ang suportang ibibigay natin sa kanila,” the Harvard alumnus said.
The gadgets, he said, are only a start, as he emphasized the need for sustained support.
He said he would also seek strategic partnerships with the private sector and the academe regarding his plan.
“Alam natin na napakaraming pagsubok ngayon na hinaharap ng mga batang may kapansanan sa kanilang online o distance learning.”
“We are envisioning putting in place a system that ensures easy access for children with disabilities and their families so that they are not left behind. This means establishing effective linkages, among others, so we can provide primary and supplementary learning resources at a subsidized rate, if not free,” Nograles added.
The solon has been conducting regular assistance programs for PWDs, senior citizens, and other vulnerable sectors in his district.Share this article:
