Persons with disabilities are NOT excluded from ....

"the general education system on the basis of disability, and that children with disabilities are not excluded from free and compulsory primary education, or from secondary education, on the basis of disability"
Article 24 CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

Fwd: Débat sur les écoles européennes mercredi 25 mai 10.00-12.00 ASP A3-E3

Dear Phil,

thank you so much for your attendance to this important meeting and all your efforts in regard of the inclusion of children with disabilities at the European Schools.

Your email below demonstrates clearly, that the responsible persons at the Commission (HR) are not really aware about the importance of inclusion at the European Schools, and the discrimination of officials of the European Union with disabled children caused by a lack in inclusion. Based on the information I received by the European Commission in the last 2 years there were 10 cases of exclusions at the school (10 cases to much!). The Commission is also not considering all the potential cases who avoid to work for the European Institutions, knowing about the accessibility lacks at the European Schools, we speak here about potentially 1.750 cases if we take into account that the school has 35.000 pupil and the average disability quota of children in the society 7%.

in regard of the needed adaptations I agree with you that the definition should be hold in general, even if we made very good experience with ABA. But what we need to ensure is, that all children will be included independently from kind and grade of their disability and that ALL necessary adaptations will be provided as requested by the parents analogue to article 24 UN CRPD, to ensure that the school "speaks the same language" with the autistic child like at home!

Best regards
Wasilios KATSIOULIS
