Why Down Syndrome and Sports Workshops?

Organized by Başakşehir Municipality on March 21, Down Syndrome Awareness Day ‘Down Syndrome and Sports Workshop’ Excited us. The reason we are excited is because we always insist on these lines. ‘What can be done about the participation of people with special needs (disabilities) in social life? ‘ Answering the question, then the first step and the next.

Early awareness sustainability

The results of the workshop conducted by Başakşehir Municipality are not only for the people of Başakşehir district and Down syndrome, but also the people with special needs (disabled), whose number is close to 15 million in different parts of our country. According to the news content of the workshop, a comprehensive understanding of the workshop with 72 academics, Başakşehir Municipal Science Board and experts among them. This means that decisions made are not the type to be ignored. Sharing results so that they reach more ‘negotiators’, relevant and authoritative, and follow up on whether they are implemented …


Feedback is important

Our country’s universities have more than 100 departments of physical education and sports. Thousands of academics and thousands of students in each department. ‘Every scientific research is important ‘ You are accepting those words. Because every work done has a certain amount of hard work and effort. The reason we are reminded is that, unlike the sports workshop held in Başakşehir district, it is a sports workshop with the phrase ‘Down Syndrome’. From all over the country,72 academicsThe views of all participants, especially the ‘opinions’, are important in the final announcement.

“Our brothers and family

Adding value to their lives. ”

We attach great importance to the words of the Mayor of Basakehir, Yassin Kartolu, about the workshops held in the municipality and draw the attention of the public. What did Mr. Cartoglu say? “Through our Down Syndrome and Sports Workshops, we aim to raise awareness for our brothers and sisters with special needs. We also want to support our brothers and sisters with Down Syndrome in sports, thus adding extra value to their lives. As a Başakşehir municipality, we will take the necessary steps in line with the reports that will emerge at the end of our workshop. We will implement activities that will add value to the lives of our brothers and their families. Taking action consistent with the report and adding value to the lives of our brothers and their families. ”

While listening to these words of the President, we shared these lines again in 2018. ‘How did they defeat Down syndrome and autism? …’ Our article has arrived. We would like to share a part of the article we shared four years ago; “The life story of Sude Chelik, who was attending the Basakehire Municipal Women’s Activity Center (BAKMER) with Down Syndrome, has changed with the sport. The potential of the municipality, the cooperation of the family and the trainer had a positive effect on the life of Sude Chelik. This change in BAKMER is reflected in the Başakşehir Municipality Bulletin under the headline ‘Sud with Down Syndrome is Happy Now’ and details of the news are as follows;

Installation in the first step.

There is no activity in the municipality, the thing we want to emphasize is to evaluate the results of the workshops and not delay in putting them into practice, as the mayor of Basakehir, Mr. Yassin Kartoglu said. What should be done in the first place? A question may come up. The first priority is the facilities, then the training of trainers who specialize in their field. Regarding installation, Bağcılar Municipality Feyzullah Kıyiklik Palace for the Disabled, Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality Disability Life Special Education and Rehabilitation Center, Uskudar Municipality Disability Life Center, Seljuk Autistic Individual Education Center in Seljuk Autistic Individual Education Center, Can be taken as an example located. The training of trainers can be conducted by educators who give their heart and soul to this work (concerning persons with disabilities). This opens the door to a healthy and happy life for those with special needs and their families.
