Dyslexia and other disabilities are no barrier to employment
0'45" 17 April 2016 Universidade Lusófona Lisbon

This video highlights the extent to which persons with disabilities may be fully integrated into the workforce, despite learning or physical disabilities which may formerly have been considered a barrier to employment. It shows that all individuals have something to offer to the workplace, and that all must enjoy equal opportunities in the jobs market. It was produced for the Council of Europe by film students at the Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Council of Europe is working to promote the quality of life, independence, freedom of choice, and active participation in community life, of disabled persons, based on legal provisions laid out in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
