A brief annotation
People with intellectual disability are rightful citizens of the Republic of Poland. Integrating people with intellectual disability into mainstream life of the society depends on each and every one of us. In over 400 centres run by the Polish Association for Persons with Mental Handicap children, young people and adults develop their artistic talents, thus contributing to national culture and art. They use modern technologies and improve their social competence as far as possible.
