Representing one-fifth of the world's population, people with disabilities have a fundamental right to a degree of protection against disasters that is comparable with that enjoyed by the rest of the population.
This project addresses to people with disabilities as well as to their caregivers, so as to contribute to their education and training and thus to raise awareness about the importance of the Earthquake Protection Measures.
It aims specifically at developing informative innovative material concerning Earthquake guidelines to people with disabilities. In fact, it is very important to produce this education material to special languages addressed to people with disabilities like, “Easy-to-read”, and augmentative alternative communication“ MAKATON”. The target groups of this activity are: people with Cognitive Impairments, Mentally retarded, illiterates, patients with Alzheimer syndrome, the whole range of autism, emigrants (who do not speak the local language), carers of people with disabilities etc.
Design and production of two posters in “easy-to-read” and to “MAKATON” language with Earthquake (before –during –after) Protection Measures to people with disabilities
Design and production of a software application
