On the fourth videocast of the HOOD project, Professor Marchisio proposes a useful metaphor to clarify how enabling co-planning works. If a person cannot walk and they want to go to a bar or joint to a meeting, we don’t tell them: practice, and you’ll participate once you’ll be able to walk. We don’t do that. We build an access ramp, we remove the steps, we give them a wheelchair. Enabling co-planning does something similar: it doesn’t try to change the person, to work exclusively on their abilities. The effort is to change the context, to make it more accessible and inclusive, to build the “ramps” that enable the person to overcome the difficulties.
