It's About Ability
Learning Guide on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
The guide was designed to serve as a resource to the booklet It's About Ability: An explanation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, a summary of the Convention written especially for children. The activities in this guide are to be used by young leaders, peer educators, teachers and other educators at the community level to facilitate learning among 12- to 18-year-olds about the Convention and how it applies to children. The main thrust of this guide is that all children and young people are equal: with appropriate attitudes, supports and confidence every person can lead fruitful and self-determined lives in her or his community with dignity.
