Defying disability

This week on Learning World we look at projects in Ireland, Qatar and Malta helping people with special needs integrate fully into their societies.

One organisation in Dublin is using new technology to help severely disabled people speak, move around and communicate more easily.

The transition from school to work is always a challenge – and even more so for people with disabilities. But one school in Qatar aims to pave the way by offering young people classes to prepare them for life in the workplace.

The Shafallah Post School Community Services Programme helps graduates of the Shafallah Centre choose a career and find a job.

In Malta one organisation says ‘We are all in the same boat’! That’s the motto of a regatta which aims to widen the horizons of disabled people by giving them and their families the opportunity to go sailing.
