In a new meeting of the ColungaHUB community, the Round Foundation invited to reflect on inclusion, and to have concrete tools when interacting with people with some type of disability.
"As a pro-inclusion foundation, we seek to break paradigms. In the difference of each one is wealth, and that makes us a better society, "said Jo Escudero, Executive Director of Fundación Ronda.
At the meeting, Carlos Acevedo, Project Manager of the foundation, delivered a series of tips to know how it is correct to interact with a person with some type of disability:
Disability of motor or physical origin
-You should not take a person's wheelchair without first introducing yourself and asking what you need.
-If someone of the third age needs help, it is necessary that you walk to the rhythm of them.
-Before communicating with the person, it is necessary that you stand in front of her, and then modulate very well, since it is easier for her to read your lips.
-Check if they can communicate through writing. If so, you need to write specific words.
-Never take the person with disabilities from the arm where the cane carries.
-Prepare before guiding or helping the person.
-When the person says that you can help her, offer her shoulder or elbow, so she can be guided.
-If you are talking with a person with visual impairment, let them know if you leave, because many times they leave them talking alone.
-Patience to listen to the person, to understand what they need to consult or express.
-Patience to explain to the person what he needs to know. Speak with direct language.
-In case you have a crisis, do not lose your temper or composure.
