Consipe helps families of children with disabilities by working with government and private institutions from around the country to bring professional aid to these children.

Consipe organizes workshops where parents actively participate in the rehabilitation of their children. At these workshops, parents share their experiences, and learn new techniques to help their children to become contributing members of society. A parent of a child with Downs Syndrome said, “My whole family worked together to overcome this challenge. As parents, we love our son and want him to be happy and for him to be able to be an active member of the society. We needed help and we went to Consipe where we learned the tools to success. Now our son is not only a great musician and a swimming champion, but also a very happy well liked boy who goes to a regular school and participates in regular activities with his friends.”

Consipe helped in studies done to develop the Law For People With Disabilities. It organizes seminars and classes to train teachers. By coordinating activities such as the “Special Olympics”, Consipe has raised the awareness of society to accept people with disabilities as contributing members. More information is available on the Consipe website and on their brochure.
