The goal of this project is the development in families, who are obstructed in their speech, can not read and write and are intellectually disabled. In our experience, with the progress of child’s age, parents get less and less objective and theoretical support for home development. This is especially true in case of unsuccessful speech initiation if in the educational institution is not used the alternative communication. We would like to help families with disabled children who want a greater emphasis on home improvement and on alternative communication, but they haven’t got opportunity to participate in training or to purchase the cards. To do this, we plan setting up a new website, which collects easy-to-use and downloadable visual aids. These materials will be developed by involving experienced parents and professionals. Opportunities provided by the website will be completed with free card printing, laminating and mailing service. We would like to draw the attention of majority with a contemporary publication for children, which presents basic communication cards too.
For website promotion and distribution of publication we will cooperate with member organisations of Hungarian Federation of People with Rare and Congenital Diseases
(HUFERDIS/RIROSZ) and other partner organisations. The website is sustainable and developable in a long-term, to help the development of intellectually disabled children.
