Soufiane El Amrani is the
easy-to-read editor of Europe for us.
This is the 4th post on Soufiane’s blog.
The blog talks about events and topics
on people with intellectual disabilities.
For the 4th blog post,
Soufiane talks about a project
on easy-to-read by Unapei.
Unapei is an organisation that fights for the
rights of people with intellectual disabilities.
Unapei was selected by Paris city in France to
provide easy-to-read training for the city staff.
The topic is important because the city of Paris wants
to make easy-to-read information available across the city.
Paris is trying to raise awareness about easy-to-read.
Soufiane thinks it is super important for all
people with intellectual disabilities to have
information in easy-to-read.
Inclusion Europe does a lot of easy-to-read
documents on many different topics.
Inclusion Europe believes all important information
should have an easy-to-read translation available.
Having information in easy-to-read helps all
people with intellectual disabilities to be able
to understand what they are reading.
Soufiane thinks that having a whole city
where information is accessible to people
with intellectual disabilities is really important.
Information in easy-to-read will make the lives
of people with intellectual disabilities much easier in Paris.
Accessible information helps everyone,
like tourists who speak a different language.
Soufiane has learnt that Paris city wants
to be accessible and have information in
easy-to-read for people with intellectual disabilities.
More and more places are understanding
the need for accessible information.
People with intellectual disabilities have the
right to access services and information the
same as everybody else.
People with intellectual disabilities should
not be limited to the place they live.
Hopefully, other cities will follow the steps
that Paris has taken.
So that people with intellectual disabilities
can better participate in society without limitations.
