We need to continue to focus our efforts on a deep understanding of the needs of our fellow people with special needs and to eliminate the barriers that are still in their path, in terms of their involvement and social integration. We must bring together our energies so that the chances of people with disabilities to be similar to that of any citizen, to enjoy equality, respect and the right to set their own priorities and the way they can apply them.
