ALDO-CET disseminates the Training Package For People With Down Syndrome produced in the framework of the DS LEISURE Project
Promoting the social inclusion of people with Down syndrome through sports, art and leisure activities, ALDO-CET organized and participated in a series of events promoting and disseminating the training package DS LEISURE.
Aiming to raise awareness of a larger number of caregivers, volunteers and leisure professionals on the importance of developing intellectual curiosity, divergent thinking, originality, self-confidence and learning with the support of ICT tools for people with Down syndrome, ALDO-CET and UNIVERSITY OF CRAIOVA have organized events for the multiplication of the DS LEISURE project at local and national level.
During these events, the participants with Down syndrome trained through the DS LEISURE program became trainers for their peers, as well as for the leisure specialists.
On June 7, 2019, at the ALDO-CET headquarters in Băilești, Dolj, a group consisting of 12 teachers, representing the educational institutions in the municipality, analysed the didactic guides, the workbook and the e-platform developed within the DS LEISURE project, from the perspective of their transferability in the practical learning activities for students with intellectual disabilities enrolled in the local educational institutions, using the technique of dialogue as it is described in the DS LEISURE methodology.
On June 15, 2019, in Busteni, Prahova, 90 parents and young people with Down syndrome, representing 10 NGOs from Argeș, Bucharest, Constanța, Dolj, Hunedoara, Teleorman and Vrancea, analysed the practical experiences of the users enrolled in ALDO-CET, carried out in various leisure environments. The training materials were presented, role-playing games were performed for the development of transversal skills and virtual scenarios were exercised on the e-platform of the DS LEISURE project. Each representative with Down syndrome from each participating organization made a "talking stick" and experienced an exercise or virtual scenario on the platform. All the participants with Down syndrome received a backpack inscribed with the elements of visual identity of the project.
On June 21, 2019, in Craiova, Dolj, 15 educational and leisure professionals debated the DS LEISURE training methodology and the practical activities experienced in recreational environments by the participants with Down Syndrome enrolled in the program; but they also performed exercises on the e-platform.
On July 13, 2019, during the Parents' Conference, held in Mamaia, Constanța, over 230 parents from the counties of Iasi, Vaslui, Botosani and the Republic of Moldova were acquainted with the intellectual products and the results obtained in the DS LEISURE project.
