Course: Inclusion of people with functional diversity (disability) in activities, programmes and services for young people

The Basque Youth Observatory is organising a course titled 'Inclusion of People with Functional Diversity (Disability) in Activities, Programmes and Services for Young People'. The course will be given by Ruth San Cristóbal and Itziar Sánchez, coordinators of the Amesten Association. 

The purpose of this course is to train social intervention professionals, municipal experts, leisure time monitors and educational staff who have contact with young people and want to acquire a broad perspective on the inclusion of young people with functional diversity in leisure and free time spaces.

The various sessions will include a historical overview of the situation of people with disabilities at a social level and their limitations, barriers and achievements in everyday life.

The inclusive working methodology used in community youth spaces will be explained. Finally, specific cases will be discussed to consolidate the theoretical aspects studied, emphasising the importance of support and counselling in daily educational work.

Specific goals:

  • Provide a conceptual framework on functional diversity.
  • Introduce the existing legislation and powers in the field of disability.
  • Learn about a specific inclusive methodology in municipal youth services.
  • Acquire the skills and guidelines to work with people with functional diversity in inclusive environments.
  • Share cases and experiences to generate collective knowledge on the intervention strategies carried out.
  • Raise the awareness of participants regarding the importance of their role in building inclusive spaces and services.
