Aakaar celebrates International Day of Disabled People

International Day of Disabled People

International Day of People with Disability on December 3 each year is an international observance promoted by the United Nations since 1992. 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 aim of Disability Day is to encourage a better understanding of people affected by a disability, together with helping to make people more aware of the rights, dignity and welfare of disabled people, as well as raise awareness about the benefits of integrating disabled persons into every aspect of life, from economic, to political, to social and cultural. Disability Day is not concerned exclusively with either mental or physical disabilities, but rather encompasses all known disabilities, from Autism to Down syndrome to Multiple Sclerosis.

One such movement is made by Aakaar child development center to increase Awareness about Autism so that early intervention can be promoted. The current video developed by the team of Aakaar professionals for every autistic parent.
