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

Die Europäische Kommission plant eine spürbare Ausweitung der Passagierrechte im Luftverkehr.

Insbesondere für ältere und behinderte Menschen müsse mehr getan werden, heißt es in einer Mitteilung, die Verkehrskommissar Siim Kallas in Brüssel vorlegen will. "Reisende mit eingeschränkter Mobilität", so rügt Brüssel, seien für Luftfahrtunternehmen vielfach Verbraucher zweiter Klasse, wenn es um einfachste Hilfsmittel und Beratung gehe, oder wenn sie etwa an Bord Sauerstoffgeräte benötigten. Kritisiert wird von der Kommission auch, dass behinderten, übergewichtigen oder alten Menschen zu oft Flug-Reservierungen mit fadenscheinigen oder ungerechtfertigten Ausreden über Sicherheitsbestimmungen verwehrt würden.

Schätzungen zufolge werde nahezu jeder zweite körperlich eingeschränkte Fluggast vor Reiseantritt schlecht mit notwendigen Flugtipps ausgestattet. Seit Monaten häufen sich die Beschwerden von Verbraucherschützern daran, dass EU-Regelungen über Fluggastrechte in den Mitgliedstaaten höchst halbherzig angewandt werden.

Vor kurzem hat die Monitoring-Stelle zur UN-Behindertenrechtskonvention die Empfehlungen der KMKz zur inklusiven Bildung kritisiert, weil sie nicht die Ziele der Konvention widerspiegelten. Brigitte Schumann kommentiert die Diskussion.

(Von Brigitte Schumann) Es ist das zweite Mal, dass Valentin Aichele, Leiter der Monitoring-Stelle für die Umsetzung der UN-Behindertenrechtskonvention (UN-BRK) am Deutschen Institut für Menschenrechte, in einer presseöffentlichen Stellungnahme mit Berufung auf seine Wächterfunktion die Politik der KMK und der Länder kritisiert. Im August 2010 stellte er klar, dass Zwangszuweisungen zur Sonder-/Förderschule angesichts des individuellen Rechts auf inklusive Bildung für Kinder mit Behinderung rechtlich unzulässig sind und eine menschenrechtliche Diskriminierung im Sinne der Konvention darstellen. Damit widerlegte er auch die Rechtssprechung des Hessischen VGH.

Repeated Stress in Pregnancy Linked to Children's Behavior

ScienceDaily (Apr. 20, 2011) — Research from Perth's Telethon Institute for Child Health Research has found a link between the number of stressful events experienced during pregnancy and increased risk of behavioural problems in children.

The study has just been published online in the latest edition of the top international journal Development and Psychopathology.

Common stressful events included financial and relationship problems, difficult pregnancy, job loss and issues with other children and major life stressors were events such as a death in the family.

Lead author, Registered Psychologist Dr Monique Robinson, said while previous studies have shown a link between stress and poorer outcomes, this study goes further by analysing the timing, amount and kinds of events that lead to poorer outcomes.

"What we have found is that it is the overall number of stresses that is most related to child behaviour outcomes," Dr Robinson said. "Two or fewer stresses during pregnancy are not associated with poor child behavioural development, but as the number of stresses increase to three or more, then the risks of more difficult child behaviour increase."

Dr Robinson said the actual type of stress experienced was of less importance than the number of stresses, and there was no specific risk associated with the timing of these stress events -- early or late -- in the pregnancy.

The analysis was undertaken on data from Western Australia's long-term cohort Raine Study, which recruited nearly 3000 pregnant women and recorded life stress events experienced at 18 and 34 weeks of pregnancy, as well as collecting sociodemographic data. The mother's experience of life stress events and child behavioural assessments were also recorded when the children were followed-up ages 2, 5, 8, 10, and 14 years using a questionnaire called the Child Behaviour Checklist.

The percentage of women with more than two stress events was 37.2%, while the percentage with six or more was 7.6%.

Dr Robinson said the study should not make pregnant women stress further about the stress in their lives.

"These types of analyses look at overall population risk, and of course individuals can have very differing responses," Dr Robinson said.

"Regardless of exposure to stress in the womb, a nurturing environment after birth can provide the child with enormous potential to change their course of development. This is known as "developmental plasticity," which means that the brain can adapt and change as the child grows with a positive environment.

"The important message here is in how we as a community support pregnant women. If we think about people who lead stressful lives, they are most often linked with socioeconomic disadvantage. This research shows we should be targeting these women with support programs to ensure the stress does not negatively affect the unborn child."

Dr Robinson said further research is needed to understand the mechanisms behind how stress in pregnancy affects the developing baby, including the impact of maternal stress hormones, attachment and parenting issues andsocioeconomic factors.

Zum Aktionstag Straßendorf auf dem Sternplatz - Lüdenscheid - Lokales - come-on.de

LÜDENSCHEID - Wer im Rollstuhl sitzt, zählt ersichtlich zu den Menschen mit Behinderungen. Doch was ist mit Taubheit, Autismus, geistigen Behinderungen? Diese Handicaps bleiben unsichtbar, und doch sollen sie am Aktionstag zur Gleichstellung von Menschen mit Behinderungen am Samstag, 7. Mai, auf dem Sternplatz ins Bewusstsein der Besucher rücken.

Dan Habib, Filmmaker, USA: "That's the power of youth."

Dan Habib, USA: "I'm excited to share this new video with you, IMPACT: Including Samuel - The Power of Youth. The eight-minute video is presented by the non-profit organization Working Films and The Fledgling Fund, and directed by Jeremy Levine of Transient Pictures. 


"Including Samuel - The Power of Youth" brings you behind the scenes of the 2010 Youth Inclusion Summit, inspired and co-organized by the Including Samuel Project.

Twenty teens from around the country converged on Washington, D.C. for the summit and created "I am Norm," a national youth-led campaign promoting the acceptance, respect and full inclusion of youth with disabilities in schools and communities. To learn how to use this campaign in your school, community or youth-serving organization, visit the I am Norm website and join the I am Norm Facebook group. 

"I am Norm" exploded onto the national scene in 2011 with a viral video, media coverage and keynote presentations across the United States. 

"I am Norm" youth leaders have presented at national conferences hosted by TASH, Kids Included Together, Inclusion Works, PEAK, VSA and the Girl Scouts of the Nation's Capital. "I am Norm" was a central component of National Inclusive Schools Week, and thousands have used the campaign media, buttons and educational guide to promote inclusion and challenge the concept of 'normalcy' across the United States.

That's the power of youth.
