Based on the idea of the importance that the systems have universal access and permanence criteria and are prepared for all people, guaranteeing participation in all the goods and services that society offers. It is society that must make the effort to include all its members, because each of them has rights as a person.
When we talk about inclusion we mean the value of diversity, understanding that there is no normality criterion applied to people, in other words there is no normal or abnormal person, we are all different. Each person has their own abilities and potentials that must be enhanced, so each person demands diverse responses.
The inclusion proposes that the development of the person occurs through participation in social and cultural life, encourages the adoption of accessibility criteria to break down architectural, communicational, attitudinal, programmatic, methodological or instrumental barriers.
There is often confusion between integration and inclusion, so we believe it is necessary to indicate their differences.
In Paraguay, the situation of persons with disabilities in general, and of children and adolescents in particular, develops in contexts mostly of exclusion and minority in integration, being inclusion a great debt of Paraguayan society. That is why the services provided by the Teletón Foundation are aimed at promoting the greatest possible autonomy of the child and his family, articulating efforts with community leaders, authorities and public and private institutions, to break down barriers to access to rehabilitation, education, health services, right to identity, transportation, among other things.
