From Nurgen Eryavuz the Mar 13, 2013

Here is one of the videos posted by Nurgen Eryavuz, Director of the 'Bazeder' association in Bakirkoy for the education of persons with mental disability (Turkey), and mother of an adult with mental disability. The video's original title is: "Engellilerin İstihdam Sorunu İçin Neler Yapılmalı?"

How to implement professional inclusion of people with learning disabilities?

(Translation of the video intervention of Ms Nurgen Eryavuz)

"We must work to ensure that persons with disabilities participate in social life, through rehabilitation and care. In my opinion, people who have more difficulties to participate in social life are persons with a mental disability.
The range of the handicaps of these people is very broad; as for children with a strong mental disability, or even a strong disability of the autism spectrum, how can they fill their days? Of course, an extremely important role returns to their families; I am convinced that the battle, led by the families so that their child has an active social life, is decisive.

There are always activities which may be carried out by children with mental disabilities, according to their capacity.

Workplaces can be created by families but also by the private sector and with the help of the State, so that these children, once adult, have a professional activity; they will still be able to carry out activities adapted to their disability, valued on the labour market, and that is part of the reason for which their lives will be again valuated."
