Examples of Human Rights materials

The partner organisations of the Puzzle Consortium from Greece, Lithuania and Poland have co-developed these informative documents about Human Rights with their learners. This material includes advisory content, learning session plans and self-learning materials in various media formats on human rights. The information provided is designed to be easily understood by adults with ID and they have helped to develop the materials. These resources serve as good examples of the PUZZLE approach being put into practice. They should help other organisations to see the potential of the PUZZLE ‘Easy to Understand’ (EtU) approach and provide inspiration for them to try working with their learners in similar ways.

Research on the PUZZLE Project showed that it is not easy for people with ID to understand the concept of human rights. EtR and EtU information is fundamentally important to ensure that people with ID have the right to be equal and included.

The Easy to Understand approach, with its use of the full range of media tools combined with work on leadership and self-advocacy, is a new inclusive and participatory model of information production for people with ID.

These tools are easy to use and they serve as demonstrators of the PUZZLE Approach. We hope that these resources will be interesting and useful for your learners and that seeing these different approaches to making information accessible will motivate you to work with your learners and service users with ID to make your own informative tools.

Please feedback to PUZZLE on your experiences of using these resources and be sure to share any resources that YOU make with your learners with us so that we can put them on the PUZZLE platform. See how to do this in the ‘Get Involved’ section of the Website.
