Mutual Consideration and Support Leads to the Realization of an Inclusive Society

December 3 ~ 9: Disabled People Week

A Week to Promote Concern and Understanding of Welfare for Disabled People

Mutual Consideration and Support Leads to the Realization of an Inclusive Society

Promoting the understanding of disability is essential for building a society where people with and without disability can live with peace of mind, by respecting one another's personality and character and by supporting one another.

We all share the desire to participate in the society, whether with or without disability. If you see someone at a loss, place yourself in the other person's position, speak to him/her, and cooperate to build our community.

4th Graders of Takasago Elementary School Try Sign Language UD Dance

The sign language UD (Universal Design) dance class was held for the first time in Takasago Elementary School, as one of the trial classes held in elementary schools of Soka City, organized by Soka-shi Taiiku Kyokai (Soka City Amateur Sports Association) to publicize and raise awareness about sports for the disabled.

Under the instruction of Mr. Jin Kitamura, sign language performer, the students attended a brief sign language class and tried sign language dance, performing with music.
The students said, "I want to speak to people with hearing disability with the sign language I just learned or with writing," and "I want to be more kind to disabled people."

Do You Know a "Help Card" and a "Help Mark"?

ヘルプカード・ヘルプマーク

A help card (on the left) is a card for people with disability or internal disease to show in asking for necessary support or consideration when they face some difficulty in daily life.

A help mark (on the right) is a mark to notify people around that the card owner needs support and help although it may be difficult to judge from appearance.

If you see someone with a help card or a help mark being at a loss, please show some consideration, such as talking to that person.
