Disability is part of the human condition.  Global data shows than more than one billion people in the world live with some form of disability, of whom nearly 200 million experience considerable difficulties in functioning. Most extended families have a disabled member, and many non-disabled people take responsibility for supporting and caring for their relatives and friends with disabilities. In the years ahead, disability will be an even greater concern because its prevalence is on the rise.

Searching for Fresh Approaches Working with Challenging Behaviours

Human being is more a verb than a noun. Each of us is unfinished, a work in progress. There is no person with challenging behaviour but challenging behavior.   We all want to feel included in everyday life, right? On various occasions  young people coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, that are institutionalized, have a disability or a mental illness tend to be treated only as a clinical case and have a solution prepared for them. These young people tend to have bleak future prospectives and are sometimes not even allowed to dream, have a vision or shape their own future.

The story of Goaitsen

Goaitsen has lived his whole life in the small Frisian village of Wyns, in the Netherlands.

Now he is retired. One day he accidentally leaves the stove on. The kitchen is already burning by the time he notices, so he calls the 112 emergency number. A friendly lady, Anita, answers the phone, but since the emergency line was recently centralised to another part of the country, she does not speak Frisian and Goaitsen has trouble making himself understood in Dutch. As a consequence Anita sends the firemen to Wynaldum instead of Wyns, and Goaitsen’s house burns down to the ground, before the firemen eventually arrive one hour late.
