An inclusive learning platform for persons with intellectual disabilities by APEMH

COFACE member APEMH has introduced a learning platform in French and Luxembourgish with a variety of subjects explaining in a friendly way daily topics that will make the life of persons with disabilities easier. It is noteworthy that this project of the Learning Platform was co-constructed from start to finish with persons with disabilities, who are also involved in the podcasts of the Platform. 

For example, there are sections on how to set up and use social media and get familiar with their terminology. It is also interesting to know that the project includes podcast episodes analysing the significant issue of cyberbullying on social media and other topics such as ‘social media traps’. 

In this Learning Platform, users can also find cooking suggestions and instructions to explore their creativity. On the other hand, there are short videos that touch upon current issues giving an idea to the users about how to be involved in social and political affairs. For example, you can find information regarding the election procedure and how you could vote, or you can learn what the rules on waste separation are.  

You can reach the Learning Platform here: Lern-Plattform 🏠
