Challenge

People with intellectual disability grow up with none or limited social support. In Mexico, they are invisible in the community and have no access to services and resources; 46% of people with intellectual disability have access to school and only 6% finishes it. Exclusion is an important factor in explaining the social isolation of individuals. Social isolation is a cause and a consequence of a range of difficult life situations that many people with intellectual disability experience.

Solution

Education, as an integral approach will give them the opportunity to enhance their autonomy and independence. Attending to special schools improves the development of skills, social abilities, and communication capabilities. An integral education includes values, human and sexual rights, social interaction and access to everyday technology.

Long-Term Impact

People with intellectual disability that access integral education will acquire the tools to reach independence, decision making by their own, knowledge and exercise of their rights; in consequence an active participation in the community reducing the exclusion gap.
