Challenge

We train people with disabilities, and must make them feel in a comfortable atmosphere. They have the will and family support to try to overcome. We must ensure that the learning environment will be increasingly appropriate and comfortable to ease the difficulties of certain physical disabilities.

Solution

Our ultimate goal is to achieve "accessibility certification of the built environment." We hope their collaboration for the progress toward this goal. We propose a first stage where we can make the first changes: Improving access through ramps, design and place appropriate signs, and if cooperation is important, adapt bathrooms to avoid uncomfortable situations.

Long-Term Impact

Improve to Meet the standard Unit 200 is the right way to the international standard ISO 21542. This will ensure the people and organizations involved with disabilities will have a building where teaching and learning in an appropriate and comfortable. We will meet and train with the best tools to incorporate this vulnerable population to the Community.
