Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project gathers a set of centres welcoming minors with an intellectual disability (in French under the syndroms called TED and DIP). Our approach applies in the first place to socio- educational educators (youth workers) of our specialized institutions and as a result to our intellectual disabled teenagers. Each partner in Spain, France, Italy, Czech Republic, has its own guidance experience with intellectual disabled teenagers in relation to a formative, normative, regulatory, family and cultural context. The project’s aim is to share resources, ideas and inspiration from different contexts and national methods in order to have the capacity to give to the child, teenager, suffering from an intellectual disability the status of European citizen and to support the institutions involved in their effort to opening up and to train their Youth workers.The main objectives are:- To enrich the professional practices of our socio-educational staff, working with young people with an intellectual disability through the sharing and the exchange of good practices in taking over young suffering from DIP and TED (Pervasive Development Disorder and Profound Intellectual Disability)- To promote the quality and the internationalisation of innovative services, pedagogies and practice of youth work by integrating in the project Transational meetings and short mobility, educational workshops between youth workers and teenagers- To reinforce the feeling of belonging, connection with the European citizenship, our goal is to help building Europe for and with vulnerable children. The citizenship provides a feeling of belonging to a community. Our ERASMUS+ project will allow us to check if the European citizen child has the same opportunities, rights and duties in different member countries (France, Spain, Italy, Czech Republic). It will allow us to see how to improve the representation that our youth workers have of our public in Europe and how we will work with our teenagers afterwards on this issue.How? :- By transnational meetings in order to exchange good practices of Youth Care Service towards the child, the family and youth activities - By the analysis, in reference to each national context, of the different stages of the Youth Care service for TED and DIP, of the normative context led by national government (kids can go to a specialized school or normal school, assistance by association for outside activities, medical coverage … ) - By the creation of a document regrouping experiences and methods put in common to work out a transferable good practice guide for Youth workers of different centres but also usable by specialized youth workers training centers.- By exchanges including Educators and children short Mobility to participate in exchanges, experiments and educational workshops on our professional practices. In our view it is important to know how our partners organize the Youth Care services for TED and DIP (with or without an Autism Spectrum Disorders). Starting from our respective national context and practices, we can possibly improve and implement new ways of doing it- By the creation of an educational video reviewing experiences and workshops set up during short Mobility, activities sand exchanges done with the TED DIP, the staff, the families of other centres, youth workers- By integrating into our institution strategy these best practices and open-up (website and brochure)
