as everyone else.

to give more support to people with disabilities.

have only the support of their family.
President Macron talked about people
with disabilities who move to Belgium
because they want better support.
Many people with disabilities go to Belgium because
they don’t have good support in France.

for these people,
so that they don’t have to leave France.

to go to school from next September,
including all children with disabilities.
No child should be left out from school.

that people with disabilities receive from the state.
He said that people with disabilities
will still get this money in the future.
