The D-ACTIVE project aims at fostering active citizenship and learning among a particular adult target group at high risk of marginalization: persons with intellectual disability.

The project partners (both institutional and private) have recognized the following problems concerning the target group:

  • difficulty in implementing activities aimed at developing key and specialist competencies (according to recommendations proposed by the European Council as in Barcelona Conference 12/05/2009 ET2020);

  • difficulty in providing European methods in order to foster the concrete development of essential competencies or becoming active citizens and finding better jobs.



Starting from a tool used in clinical and social fields - the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, the so-called ICF (recommended by WHO) and in order to address the needs explained above, the D-CTIVE project aims at creating and experimenting multidimensional and integrated tools and applicative models in education.



The main outputs are:

  • to create and experiment a handbook and a model course in order to train educationalists to implement actions aimed at developing active citizenship in people with intellectual disability;

  • to create and experiment a handbook and a model course to be used by trained educationalist when dealing with people with intellectual disability;

  • a permanent on-line platform for acquiring tools, collecting and comparing data resulting from research.

The envisaged impacts are:

  • realizing intervention models recognized and usable on a European scale;

  • using the created models in educational work and in actions of programming, research, and comparing among different European countries;

  • cconcerning people with intellectual disability and their families: improvement of the quality of life;

  • development of opportunities for exercising their rights to active citizenship

  • fulfillment of the objectives setup by the European Council.
