SOCIALIZATION OF CHILDREN WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DIFFICULTIES IN THE FAMILY AND LOCAL COMMUNITY

                                   

                           

            In the presented paper at the beginning, stressing the existence of the  two large groups of  disabled persons: children with developmental difficulties and labour disabled persons, the problem of children with developmental difficulties especially of those mentally retarded  from medical, psychological pedagogical and rehabilitation aspect is stressed.

            At the same time the basic assumptions given by the Macedonian Constitution providing better living and working conditions of these citizens are stressed. Also, certain indications  presented  are related to  socialization of children with developmental difficulties and are connected with the training of the centres of social affairs, information and advisory work with parents.

            In that way it is pointed out that the Republic Institute for social affairs in cooperation with UNICEF and the association  of East-European Partnership develop programme processes that give support to such an orientation.
