WDSD 2019 “Leave no one behind!” – Italy (AIPD)

21 March is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The motto of this year’s event is: Leave no one behind!
EDSA has asked their members to show people with Down syndrome taking part in activities together with others. Starting on 1 March, we show 21 examples from across Europe to make it clear that no one should be left behind!

AIPD, as part of the paths to autonomy, organizes summer holidays aimed at the growth in autonomy of youngsters and adults with Down syndrome.

Holidays are organized for small groups because one of the objectives is the involvement of the youngsters in the choices and management of the holiday, from luggage to travel, from shopping to preparing meals. They take place in normal residential facilities (hotels, apartments for rent).
No one should be left behind.

L‘AIPD, nell‘ambito dei percorsi all‘autonomia, organizza vacanze estive finalizzate alla crescita in autonomia dei ragazzi e degli adulti con sindrome di Down.

Le vacanze sono organizzate per piccoli gruppi perchè uno degli obiettivi è il coinvolgimento dei ragazzi nelle scelte e nella gestione della vacanza, dal bagaglio al viaggio, dalla spesa alla preparazione dei pasti. Sono in normali strutture residenziali (hotel, appartamenti in affitto).
Nessuno deve essere lasciato indietro.
