As a caring community, Taguig continues to push for programs for PWDs in the city including the following:

PWDs are provided priority lanes in all of the city’s offices and services.

They are also granted scholarship under the Priority Courses and Skills Training of the city’s Lifeline Assistance for Neighbors In-Need scholarship program.

The city hired deaf encoders for the Taguig City Integrated Survey System (TCISS).

A training on sign language is conducted for city employees.

The city improved the SPED Center (Sentro Kalinga) which is recognized by the Department of Education and has now additional manpower including occupational and physical therapists.
