Testing ICF – a big challenge

Although the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) brings a complex system for assessing the person with disability from the perspective of all his/her life contexts the application and interpretation of specific codes is a rather big challenge. Within the last project period the TEC partners carried out several assessments in their respective countries the result of which are case studies of assessed clients with special needs from Cyprus, Italy, Norway, Turkey and Slovakia. All utilized methods and practices are available at the TEC project web here: http://www.grundtvigtec.com/

Good practice from Turkey

This time the TEC partners visited several Turkish social cooperatives that provide services to various vulnerable groups of the society – elderly people, teenagers and women.

The TEC project in accordance with the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 which remarks the demand of an increasing coherence among Member States policies and "has the overall aim to empower people with disabilities so that they can enjoy their full rights, and benefit fully from participating in society and in the European economy," has the main purpose to develop innovative and effective tools for the work placement, evaluation and measurement of competences of adult people with disabilities in line with the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF).
