3 tips how to interact with deaf people, blind people and people with mental disabilities – https://youtu.be/-DH6pN_hRjA
This project was developed by a group of young people with disabilities and fewer opportunities to tackle the challenges they face in everyday life when it comes to their physical and mental wellbeing. This challenges are identified by participants on the following levels: (1) individual – lack of knowledge about where to exercise; fear of falling; the nature of the impairment can produce pain; lack of energy; (2) social – depending on parents more than their peers; Physical Education teachers lack professional preparation or equipment and have to exclude youth with disabilities; lack of friends to play with; (3) environmental – lack of place to play; barriers in outdoor areas. The emotional and psychological impact that sport and physical activity can have on young disabled people are significant for their personal growth. This project is funded by the European Union.
Project objectives are:
To increase knowledge of participants on where and how to exercise as well as how to adapt physical exercises to different categories of youth with disabilities;
To support social inclusion and develop social skills of the participants;
To increase confidence and self-esteem of the participants;
To increase motivation of participants to actively practice physical and recreational activities;
To develop language and intercultural skills as well as a sense of belonging to the European community;
To promote Erasmus+ and its Inclusion and Diversity Strategy, as well as Youthpass certificate.
