National level conference on issues related to Divyangjans begins in Jaipur
A two-day national conference related to diverse issues of Divyangjans is being jointly organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry ( CII), Rajasthan and Department of Social Justice & Empowerment; supported by Disha and Rehabilitation Council of India at Hotel Clarks Amer in Jaipur.

The "Conference on Disability: Multiple Possibilities and Prospects (Ability Continuum, Diversity, Access and Inclusion)" will conclude on November 11. Prior to the conference, on November 9, a workshop on disability-media relationships were explored with sessions conducted by Madhusudan Srinivas of NDTV, Shipra Mathur of Rajasthan Patrika and Dr Lalit Kishore of Disha. In the workshop sessions, the roles of electronic, print and social media were covered.

According to the event organizers, with the new agenda of education and opportunities for all, there is need for a paradigm shift from redressing human rights through remedial and compensatory designs for preventing problems through holistic and inclusive interventions of human development.

Further, with the emergent rights for persons with special needs, differently abled people or Divangjan and legal protection of their rights through disability Acts, there is a need to explore afresh the ability continuum of people for their relevant education and development.

At the conference, the issues related to needs of differently abled people are going to be discussed though keynote addresses, panel discussions, paper presentations, poster presentations, group discussions and workshops.
