Call for participants – Erasmus+ “Child Disability Parent Education” 20th – 26th April 2019 (Turkey)

2019 Call For Participants!

The next stage of the Erasmus+ project “Child Disability Parent Education” will take place in April 2019. As a result, we are looking for 3 participants to take part in the first training activity.

The 1-week learning, teaching & training activity will take place in Izmir (Turkey) from the 20th – 26th April 2019 & will be hosted by our partner Incirliova Genclik Kultur, Sanat ve Gelisim Dernegi.

Child-Disability-Parent-Education is an Erasmus Plus project focusing on supporting parents of children with SEN (Special Educational Needs), particularly those families facing stressful situations or feeling socially marginalised. The project aims to develop a network (at a European level) for parents of children with SEN, creating motivational films to aid the development of positive thinking.

As this project is funded by the European programme, Erasmus+, the participants will be reimbursed for the cost of travel (flights, rail etc). Accommodation and food will be provided by the organisers.

The learning, teaching and training activities are designed to:

  • Create motivational films for positive thinking and non-formal education with therapeutic examples for parents and specialists;
  • Create more communicative relations within the parents-children-therapists community;
  • Improve the relationship between parents of children with and without SEN;
  • Raise awareness in the local communities;
  • Better understand the lifestyle of parents of children with SEN;
  • Discover opportunities offered by the EU on intercultural and linguistic development;
  • Build lasting partnerships at a European level;
  • Upgrade non-formal education through cooperation and technology;
  • Encourage families to better communicate with each other and discover new options;
  • Explore strategies and approaches that can be employed in non-formal education
  • Establish appropriate mechanisms for the review and revision of non-formal education for children with SEN

For this call for participants, we would especially encourage participants with fewer opportunities, particularly the following:

  • Parents of children with disabilities
  • Support workers actively working with the disabled
  • Special needs teachers
