Months ago, my friend/office mate/co-blogger Faith Salazar informed me about the SPED Expo 2009 which will happen on the 1st of December 2009. A former SPED teacher herself, she truly knows the sentiments of the families of Special Children.
I’ve been getting a lot of hits from search engines and comments from my old post SPED Schools in the Philippines. I strongly recommend that you register and attend the SPED Expo 2000 with the theme “A World of Possibilities”. See the press release below:
Every child with special needs has a right to an educational program that is suitable to his/her needs. Having the right education and the right tools is crucial in ensuring that a child fully realizes his/her full potential for development, both as an individual and as a member of the society.
It is for this reason that our company, Etera Events, is initiating a Special Education Expo on December 1, 2009 at the newly renovated Glorietta Activity Center. Simultaneous to the exhibition is a Special Education forum, storytelling, games and performances by celebrities.
The Special Education Expo 2009 is the first fair on special education to be held in the country. With the theme “A World of Possibilities”, this event aims to bring together parents of special children, special education schools, therapy centers, toy manufacturers, suppliers of special tools and equipment, specialized food sellers, book publishers, and other SPED industry practitioners like teachers, doctors, therapists, among others.
The goal of the event is to create awareness on the needs of special children and provide options for these individuals to ensure they live a happy and normal life.
By contributing to make this event happen, you are helping improve the quality of life and dignity of more than 5.4 million Filipinos who are in need of special education products, equipments and services. Proceeds for the said event will be given to Support and Empower Abused Deaf Children, a non-profit organization dedicated at defending the rights of deaf children who are victims of sexual abuse and maltreatment.
One of the event’s major sponsors, World Vision, will be bringing celebrity endorsers to do intermission numbers, storytelling and other activities.

It’s raining real hard here in the Philippines as I type this entry and I’m all alone at my room. My grandmother is currently recovering from a heart operation at St. Lukes and my grandfather is beside her. A blogger friend and I originally planned to avail the GC we got as a prize last year, but the weather just won’t let us out.
Anyway, I would like to share this photo I found at an old USB I used way back in college. If I’m not mistaken, this photo was taken at the rooftop a day after Christmas 2006. Carlo wanted to swim though he doesn’t really know how. I remember how he threatened me as a child when he kept on jumping at our school’s swimming pool even at a young age of three. Yes, he is a water baby. My father kept on bringing him at the school swimming pool at least once a week.
