For The Kids 2011

January 19, 2011

The FTK is an annual mini-Olympics made especially for children with special needs including the Deaf. Back in 1986, it began as a small project organized by the DLSU-Center for Social Concern and Action (COSCA) in partnership with the University’s Physical Education Department. They pulled off the first event with 50 participating kids from different centers and SPED schools.

I once joined it when for the first time they included the Deaf from SDEAS as part of the organizing group. I happened to be a student then of Filipino Sign Language [FSL] under the DLS-CSB SDEAS Filipino Sign Language Learning Program. I remember being assigned to a Deaf kid from Susano Elementary School. We all had a lot of fun then.

Now in its 21st year, FTK is a source of inspiration not only for the Kids but for the Kuyas and Ates as well. [For photos of SDEAS’ Kuyas and Ates, blog posted on January 16, 2011, visit www.deaf-e-news.blogspot.com]
