  1. My Cousin a 9 years old boy . a SPED boy that is one of the contestant for this event ...
    My only concern is regarding the Organizer of this specific event .. what you did was painful for parents like us.. i hope you may do some actions to this

    1. You stated that event will start in 9am .. But you start around 1pm..
    2. You already started late then you get you didnt manage to handle 1st the SPED contestants did you know that most of those child already having their tantrums ..
    3. some of the parents already caught your attention but what you did was unacceptable you didnt even have any concerns to this children..

    4. all this children want is to play for this special event .. we supposed to have equal treatments and you supposed to plan for this certain event...

    in total its not a good 2014 palarong pambansa ... hopefully those who are involved in this event should realize what you did to this SPED children ... YOU ARE SO UNFAIR

  2. I agree with you Ronnie,my nephew is also one of the delegates from Marikina delegation and is also a special child.
