May we remind you that 3rd December 2022 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. IALP is supporting this day which is promoted by WHO.
The theme this year is "Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world".
The annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on 3 December was proclaimed in 1992 by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. The observance of the Day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities.
The 2022 global observance to commemorate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities will be around the overarching theme of innovation and transformative solutions for inclusive development, covering in three different interactive dialogues the following thematic topics:
• Innovation for disability inclusive development in employment (SDG8): this dialogue will discuss the linkages between employment, knowledge and skills required to access employment in an innovative, rapidly changing technological landscape to all and how assistive technologies can increase accessibility to employment and be mainstreamed in the workplace.
• Innovation for disability inclusive development in reducing inequality (SDG10): this dialogue will discuss innovations, practical tools and good practices to reduce inequalities in both public and private sectors, which are disability inclusive and interested in promoting diversity in the workplace.
• Innovation for disability inclusive development: sport as an exemplar case: a sector where all of these aspects coalesce; sport as a good practice example and a site of innovation, employment and equity.


WEBINAR - IALP-UEP-EAP - 14th September 2022
In the announced webinar (please read attached flyer for further information), we would like to re-acquaint you with the term phoniatrics, as it may not be familiar to some outside Central Europe. Today, phoniatrics has gained visibility because its fields of activity touch the work of non-medical professionals such as speech-therapists, logopedes, musicians, as well as physicians in intensive care, neurology, paediatrics audiology and ENT.
The lectures explain the status of phoniatrics in many countries, especially in Europe, the cradle of which was in 1905 at the Charité in Berlin. Since then, the idea of a medical speciality dealing with communication has spread beyond the borders of Europe to the Arab and Latin Worlds.
We invite you to participate in an overview of Phoniatrics during the webinar titled “Phoniatrics: to communicate or not”.
