Fundación Descúbreme and People with Cognitive Disabilities

Fundación Descúbreme is a not-for-profit organization in Chile that promotes, facilitates, and disseminates the concept of inclusion of people with cognitive disabilities through social change. Their goal is to eliminate the barriers that society enforces and to create equal opportunities for community participation, including employment and education, for people with cognitive disabilities. To this end, staff at Fundación Descúbreme has created several guides to assist people with cognitive disabilities, including a guide on creating a resume, and a guide that discusses the tools for the inclusive employment of people with disabilities.  Their library provides resources on various topics, including cognitive accessibility, strategies for education, and inclusive businesses. The Foundation also supports inclusion projects that directly benefit initiatives on educational and employment inclusion. If you or a loved one have a cognitive disability and live in Chile, please contact Fundación Descúbreme for more information.
