2) Empower to grow: the pursuit of labor autonomy of intellectually disabled subjects

It is known that empowerment enables intellectually disabled people with the tools necessary for them to become authors of their own history, having the power to decide all aspects, as well as allowing social, cultural and economic changes in their lives. This project aims to implement empowerment strategies to promote education, health and autonomy of young people and adults with intellectual disabilities, aiming their professionalization. It is intended to stimulate the professionalization of these subjects and enable the skills training and preparation for entering the job market, with rights, duties and skills for different tasks and functions.
