The contribution of parents to the construction of an inclusive society

T.I.E.S has launched an awareness campaign entitled "The contribution of parents to the construction of an inclusive society" aimed at parents, which is intended to:
  • change representations and overcome parents' prejudices towards children with special needs (SEN),
  • facilitate the social integration of SEN into the family and society,
  • become aware of the existence of the many interventions that enable parents to overcome obstacles and difficulties and promote their child's social and academic success,
  • raise awareness about the rights of people with SEN in Lebanon and the steps to follow to send their child to school in the best conditions,
  • talk about the different types of invisible special needs that are misunderstood and not identified by parents and society,
  • view testimonials from young people with special needs who have made a success of their lives thanks to the support of their parents.

The first meeting was held in Basloukit, a village in Zgharta district in the northern Governorate of Lebanon, on 17 August 2019 in the presence of parents and people concerned by the theme.

"You've been making us happy for 11 years now! When you were 4, we were told you were autistic! We're moving forward, we're trying hard, and we'll always keep doing our best! You are the way you are and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love you as you are with your peculiar ways, your language that isn’t always adapted! I love you with your autism which is another form of intelligence! You are my life! My daughter! My struggle!" (Mum of Lynn).

"Parental love is the condition for the existence, growth and development of the child. […]. It is from the affection he receives, that he perceives himself as kind and that he will develop his skills" (Ringler, 2009).

Promoting inclusive education through sport

“Life is about taking risks, working through change and having the courage to live your potential. Hiding may not be as painful, but it's not as much fun” (Silken Laumann, olympic gold medalist).

  • Promote inclusive education through sport;

Daring sports despite diversity
