The integrative project "Ordinary parents" aims to provide an opportunity for an exchange of experience to professionals and multiplicators working with young and disabled people. New approaches to the central topic "parenthood with disabilities" shall be developed jointly. Background of the project are the various difficulties and prejudices young people with disabilities are faced with before and during their family foundation. Professionals in the field of youth and adult education, experts in a voluntary capacity, and people concerned will jointly seek ways of overcoming those prejudices and difficulties as well as new methods and strategies for the work from and with young parents with disabilities. There are two meetings planned in Tallinn (Estonia) and Bremen (Germany). In each will participate 15 persons, partly working as professionals in that field, partly being engaged in the topic on a voluntary capacity. The first meeting is mainly dedicated to a more theoretical exchange on methods and perspectives in the work with parents with disabilities in the form of workshops and expert discussions. The second meeting aims to develop more practical approaches by visiting different integrative and self-help projects. The project is based on methods of non-formal education as well as of participative and integrative learning.
A central result of the project shall be the autonomous work of a self-help group of parents with disabilities in Vitebs (Belarus). Further, the participants will be facilitated to bring in new methods and perspectives to their work with young adults and parents with disabilities. The long-term aim of the project is to make parenthood with disabilities a more recognised topic in the countries of the participating organisations. Also, the principle of self-organisation shall be established in further Belorussian cities.
The project is conducted by be Belorussian NGO "Different-Equal", the German organisation "Kanikuli" and the NGO "Academy of childhood" from Estonia.
