Effective communication with people with disabilities can be taught or trained via peer support. Young people, both with and without disabilities, can share experiences with their peers and learn from each other. This will help young people with disabilities to have their voices heard and to participate in society by enabling them to become fully active citizens.
The peer support advocated by our project touches the heart of inclusion for young people with disabilities: giving them both a voice and the opportunities to use it.Young people who are trained through the project will carry their newfound skills beyond childhood and adolescence into their adult life, advocating for inclusion and influencing others in their interactions withpeoplewith disabilities, of all ages.
The Inclusive Communication Peer Support Hub is aimed at anyone with an interest in improving their inclusive communication tools and developing processes dedicated to the youth community. The Hub aims to promote inclusion and accessibility in its content and structure. Our concept of inclusive information is to make everything easy to access and simple to understand,– that way, our message will go further.
