Spark Change – Luke Anderson

Luke Anderson is solving the problem of accessibility one step at a time. When he sustained a life-changing injury he gained first-hand experience with inaccessibility. Anderson quickly decided to do something about it and founded StopGap. He uses brightly painted cost-effective, portable ramps to create conversations with business owners around the importance of barrier-free spaces, and how a simple step can be a really big deal to so many people. These brightly painted portable ramps can now be found in more than 40 Canadian cities, with more than 1,000 StopGap ramps in circulation.

Comment favoriser l’intégration des personnes ayant une déficience intellectuelle à un emploi?

Les personnes ayant une déficience intellectuelle (DI) ont le droit de participer à la vie collective.

Mentionnons l’objectif de la Loi 2005 sur l’accessibilité pour les personnes handicapées de l’Ontario qui est d’éliminer les obstacles à l’intégration à l’emploi auxquels sont confrontées les personnes ayant une DI.

L’inclusion au niveau collégial

Depuis septembre 2014, le collège la Cité, à Ottawa, accueille des adultes ayant une déficience intellectuelle ou un trouble du spectre autistique.

Le programme “Intégration communautaire par l’éducation coopérative” fournit aux étudiants l’occasion de faire l’expérience de la vie collégiale, d’améliorer leurs compétences académiques et de développer des aptitudes professionnelles.

On Tuesday, October 25th, we’ll be talking about how to #SparkChangeToday by sharing Inspiring Possibilities with others.
