This project and its results brought together people with disabilities, self-help organisations and vocational rehabilitation centres in order to develop a support concept for young people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus and to put this concept into practise.
The basis was the empowerment-oriented approach.
Existing medical studies and publications on disability symptoms were, for the first time, used for the development of the occupational training concept.
The project partners and those involved, who are the “experts of their own affairs”, also conducted a future workshop (Zukunftswerkstatt).
Self-determination and participation in working life were central reference points in the project. The project supports young people with disabilities by means of professional counselling by identifying occupational development possibilities.
Peer counselling is used as an empowerment instrument.
