Changing the Conversation
By Tomislav Zaja
Celebrating more than 20 years of commitment to inclusion.
Our partner in Croatia, the Association for Promoting Inclusion, was established more than 20 years ago under the visionary leadership of Professor Borka Teodorovic. The association has changed the conversation about what is possible for people with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities throughout Croatia and in the broader region. Through self-advocacy, training, development of models for community-based services, and the transformation of residential institutions into providers of community-based services, API has made inclusion possible for people with intellectual and/or psychosocial disabilities in Croatia.
