In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Enablement developed tip sheets on four main topics for Light for the World:
- Eating and drinking
- Epilepsy, Nodding Syndrome and medication
- Active lifestyle
These are meant to support those working with and/or caring for children and adults with disabilities. The tip sheets include visuals and some supporting text.
The book of flip charts carries the same content as the tip sheets, with visuals on one side for the caregivers of people with disabilities to see, and slightly more elaborate text on the other page for the fieldworker.
This manual was developed as part of the Economic Empowerment Project in Myanmar. It includes all the tools that were developed for, revised or created after an audit visit, based on experiences and information from the field. This was done by Enablement, in collaboration with TLMM and two students from the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam.
With this manual, we hope to ensure the sustainability of these tools to enable countries such as Myanmar to have inclusive marketplaces.
During our involvement in the Economic Empowerment Project in Myanmar, we have been involved in accessibility audits of marketplaces and the development of a tool to give guidance on the different adaptations that make a marketplace more inclusive, as well as to help people understand why it is important to create inclusive marketplaces.
The flashcards contain six categories: entrance, pathways, displays, facilities, directions and rules and regulations. Every category has a few topics. Within the topics, two situations are described: the DO and the DON'T.
On each card is also specified what type of marketplace (e.g. new or existing) the adaptation is meant for.
The flashcards are freely available in English and are currently being translated into Burmese.
For enquiries or any interest in translation, please consult firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the RehApp mobile application, Enablement has developed flashcards for those preferring paper-based tools. All the information from the RehApp chapters can be found on these paper-based flashcards.
More chapters and translations are currently being developed, so keep an eye on this page for new additions!
The flashcards are available for free download on this page.
Experienced by more than one billion people worldwide, disability is increasingly recognised as a human rights issue internationally. Completely up to date, Disability and Human Rights draws on cutting edge international research and real life examples to explore the global dimension of disability and to critically review progress on the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
This book provides readers with an in-depth exploration of disability across key areas of human rights, including health, education, employment, accessibility and independent living. It demonstrates how these issues are integral to achieving full and equal participation of disabled people in human societies across the life cycle. The book analyses the impact of poverty, the importance of support and the relevance of culture and it maps out how to make disability rights a reality in the coming decades.
Together with Daniel Tsengu from Nigeria, Huib Cornielje wrote chapter 16 of this publication: "Equipping professionals with competencies to better support persons with disabilities". Professional advocacy aligned with disability rights is strongly recommended in this chapter that deals with professionals and their attitudes towards disability. CBR is further promoted an indispensable strategy leading to inclusion of people with disabilities in society; an area of work that needs to be highlighted in training of all rehabilitation professionals.
