ALL BY MYSELF
Agregator of ICT tools at the service of inclusion and support for the autonomous life of people with intellectual disabilities.
Project that is developing a global and intelligent software tool that adds the best ICT tools to the service of inclusion and support for the independent life of people with intellectual disabilities and/or mental illness, in order to empower them, to encourage their pro-activity and to facilitate their autonomy in all areas, especially in the framework of Independent Living programs, both for people who take the step to live alone and those who continue to live with the family. The project is born from the need expressed by people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness who use mobile phones with some ease to solve the dispersion of existing ICT tools and have a single tool that classifies, values and makes them easily accessible.
“All by myself” will offer a digitally inclusive, cognitively accessible, and easy-to-read tool for people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness and will facilitate improvements in inclusion in the community with the support of ICT solutions in such diverse fields. such as social and family relations, parental function, education, training, work, health, citizen and political participation, culture, leisure, sport or leisure activities. To achieve this, the ICT tools that the tool will add will facilitate knowledge, liaison, and participation in all those initiatives that provide services to make possible the Independent Living of people with intellectual disabilities or mental illness, with the additional advantage offered by the technology of overcoming borders and being able to link people with initiatives and solutions from other environments and countries.
- Empower people with intellectual disabilities or mental illness who use a mobile phone and can carry out an Independent Living project, encouraging their pro-activity and abilities and making it easier for them to gain autonomy in all areas.
- Facilitate the professional or voluntary work of personal assistants and professional, family and volunteer referents in Independent Living programs for people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness.
- Contribute to advancing towards a new way of providing remote services for people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness that is useful to specialized organisations and public systems.
- Provide useful knowledge for improving Independent Living programs and future planning of services for people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness.
The project is expected to foster and promote dignity, personal freedom, equal opportunities, lowering barriers and the social inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness, strengthening Independent Living programs, and contributing to move towards the social model of disability embodied in the United Nations International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
