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.
