School of Masters of Inclusion
More than 4,330,000 people live in the Sverdlovsk region, about 9% of them have disabilities - this is a huge layer of our society, consisting of active, creative and worthy people, with whom they simply sometimes do not want to communicate, and sometimes they do not notice. It is important to understand that the criterion for the accessibility of the environment is not the number of ramps and symbols of the accessibility of the environment, but the number of people with disabilities moving independently in the urban space, especially people with disabilities of the first group. Thus, there is an understanding of the need not only to create effective mechanisms for inclusion, but also to create a system of educating society in matters of respect for the rights and dignity of persons with disabilities.

Therefore, the goal of the School of Inclusion Masters project is to improve the quality of the accessible environment and inclusive interaction through the formation of communicative inclusive competencies among employees interacting with people with disabilities in the process of practice-oriented training with the participation of trainers from among people with disabilities.
The "School of Masters of Inclusion" continues to develop social innovations. A new step is the creation of an inclusive working group of experts, including people with hearing, visual, musculoskeletal, mental and psychiatric disabilities to develop and coordinate the educational program of the seminar "Formation of communicative competence for interaction with people with disabilities health."
Teachers and trainers will not only conduct practice-oriented classes for employees of various services and organizations, but also develop and adapt the educational and methodological support of the program. For this project, a methodological manual was developed.
To do this, at all stages of the project implementation, experts from among the disabled of four nosological groups will be involved, who, like no one else, understand the specifics of interaction based on the characteristics of a person.

In the process of practice-oriented learning:
  • 1
    The “Personal story” method is effectively used, when people with various types of disabilities are involved in practical classes and master classes as teachers: wheelchair users, blind and visually impaired people, people with mental and psychiatric disabilities – “masters of inclusion”, who have achieved significant and significant life results. When conducting classes, teachers with disabilities organize interaction in such a way that they are perceived as successful individuals who have a positive experience of inclusion in society, and not as disabled people.
  • 2
    Trainings are conducted for trainees, imitating the service and service for persons with disabilities using technical means of rehabilitation.
  • 3
    Trainers and people with disabilities are being trained for further independent training under the program.
Target audience of the project:

  • Students from among teachers and other employees of educational institutions
  • Listeners from among employees of social institutions
  • Health Education staff trainees
  • Students from among the staff of institutions working with people with disabilities
