People with intellectual disabilities are among the most vulnerable citizens who still do not have proper living conditions in terms of their rights to live in a community, to use adequate support systems, to have enough understanding of their position in society, for their educational, labour and many other types of social rights.
The session will seek to:
– Discuss the different aspects of the process of deinstitutionalization and social inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities including the main obstacles to the process, reasons for them as well as possibilities to resolve them.
– Present some forms of support systems for people with intellectual disabilities which exist as well as those which yet should be developed to build equal opportunities and quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities.
– To compare the experiences of the social inclusion process and features of living in a community for people with intellectual disabilities among Zagreb and Bilbao, as well as lessons learned and pending challenges in this area.
