P6_TA(2007)0506P6_DCL(2007)0064

Declaration of the European Parliament on "dys'crimination and social exclusion affecting children with "dys'abilities

The European Parliament ,

–   having regard to Rule 116 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.   whereas, according to estimates more than 10% of children are affected each year by one or other "dys"-type disability such as dysphasia, dyspraxia, dyslexia, dyscalculia or attention deficit disorder, etc., and whereas the statistics on these disorders need to be refined,

B.   whereas this type of "dys'ability, which badly impairs communication from a very early age, goes unidentified in many Member States,

C.   whereas research into these "dys'abilities, including research co-ordinated under the Seventh Framework Programme, must be stepped up,

D.   whereas the only way to prevent "dys'crimination against affected children is to give them early, intensive and multidisciplinary treatment in appropriate structures (either in the normal school environment with appropriate special care, or in a specialised establishment),

1.  Asks the Commission and the Council:

   to draw up a charter for "dys" children,
   to encourage the recognition of "dys"-type problems as disabilities,
   to promote best practices regarding:
   making information accessible,
   taking timely steps to identify, screen, systematically diagnose and treat these disorders at an early stage,
   designing effective learning structures within both the ordinary and the specialist educational environment for young children, adolescents and young adults,
   adapting structures for integrating young people with these disabilities into the world of work,
   to promote and encourage the creation of a European multidisciplinary network on specific learning difficulties, and by this means to collect and study information and promote the coordination of cross-border actions, as well as institutional dialogue;

2.  Instructs its President to forward this Declaration, together with the names of the signatories, to the Council, the Commission and the parliaments of the Member States:
