Policy paper on the analysis of legislation and practical situation related to employment of persons with disabilities
Persons with disabilities and children with special care are in risk group.
This group has more problems than others.
Their medical treatment, daily living, education, rest, work, socialization, etc. is a problem in itself.
It is impossible for most people with disabilities to handle all these problems alone.
Besides these problems, there are difficulties in society's perception in acceptance of a person with a disability as a personality. When someone sees a person with a disability, he/she does not even allow their children to talk to him/her, calling them"deaf", "blind", "dumb", "crazy", "abnormal", "invalid" living in such the environment becomes impossible for this people.

The policy paper has been particularly focused on employment of persons with disabilities and gaps at this sphere.
Online research, information inquiries and opinions of experts were used in the preparation of the policy paper.
Recommendations for addressing the shortcomings and problems revealed in the policy paper.
