Every December 3, since 1992, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The United Nations adopted this day to draw attention to the need to create support for the inclusion of people with disabilities in society.
Children with disabilities are considered those who have a physical, mental, intellectual or sensory deficiency that affects them when it comes to fully participating in society.
My children go to a preferred school to children with motor disabilities. The school is fully adapted for children who have to move in a wheelchair. Moreover, from early childhood education, they teach children without disabilities to help their peers, to understand them and to respect them. The relationship is beneficial for everyone.
Measures like this, which try to educate children from infancy, improve the conditions of children with disabilities, since it integrates them into the group as equals that they are.
There is a long way to go to create a equal opportunities for children with disabilities although technology has helped those children who have access to it a lot to develop abilities and skills that would otherwise be more complicated.
Beyond the world of business or politics where it is essential to develop programs available to children with disabilities and that take their needs into account, parents can contribute by teaching our children to understand disability:
- We must talk to them and make them understand that disability is not the same as disability. For example, the video of a visually impaired girl who sings while reading the lyrics in Braille. His voice is wonderful.
- We can do activities with the senses: cover their eyes or ears so that they know what it feels like when it is not seen, or not heard. In this way we foster the child's empathy towards children with disabilities.
- Bring them stories or stories of characters with disabilities.
- Encourage rapprochement, play or friendship with children with disabilities.
In any case, respect and empathy are the pillars on which we must teach our children to understand disability.
