World Disability Union: New global organization dedicated to barrier-free life for LD, ADHD, NVLD, Autism & Asperger’s
Every now and then, one catches a glimpse of a world where people willingly come together to improve life for individuals with disabilities- and every condition is welcomed & included. There is such a place in Istanbul, Turkey. I mean, come on! What's not to like when you see a huge billboard of World Disability Union (WDU) President Metin Sentuk welcoming the world when I arrived at the airport??!! My recent trip to Istanbul, Turkey, as an invited USA delegate to the WDU General Assembly brings me renewed hope for the millions of persons who have learning disabilities, ADHD, Asperger's, TBI or other "hidden disabilities." These are real persons being left behind ; whose needs go unanswered due to not considered being part of the " most significantly disabled."
Delegates came to Istanbul representing 6 continents & 65 countries in order to establish the World Disability Union and a global Congress addressing Universal Design. They left as friends, relatives and colleagues dedicated to our motto "WE KNOW NO BARRIERS!" httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4XaXA1B2hs
