ABOUT THE PWD FORUM
The PWD Forum advocates for the integration of special education in the basic and secondary curriculum of schools in the Philippines. Persons with disabilities (PWDs) should be entitled to study alongside non-PWDs for it would help the country’s economy if almost all of its citizens are skilled and qualified to meet the labor demands of globalization.
