Equal Opportunities and people with Special Needs
Together forward brighter future free of violence against women and people with special needs
What is a disability?
Disability in general is a functional, physical, sensory or mental loss or failure, total or partial, permanent or temporary, resulting from a birth defect or an accident, or acquired from a condition that lasted more than it should last.
What is verbal abuse?
Verbal abuse is harsh and painful words, the effects of which may be deposited deep in the psyche of a person. The individual may forget the pain of beating after a few minutes, but it is difficult for him\her to forget the verbal insult that may leave in his\her mind unfortunate traces.
The language we use reflects the extent of our respect and acceptance of the other, and the use of appropriate language when speaking and communicating with and about people with special needs, is an essential step towards building a diverse and inclusive society that accepts all its members, with their differences.
