Communication and Activity – Two Foundations for Design of Integrative (Inclusive) Spaces

1232

Abstract

The article presents some data on inclusive processes in Germany. On the basis of the observations made in kindergartens and schools (both regular and inclusive) the assumption about certain limitation of inclusive education was made. The possibilities of inclusion of people with disabilities in labour activities are reviewed. The discussion focuses on the possibility of leisure-time inclusion. Two leisure-time inclusive projects – Dyunamis (Germany) and Turgrad (Russia) are analyzed. The article demonstrates that the idea of collaborative activities and active society involvement in the process of personal development and the idea of promoting the natural development of man may form the basis of this project.
