Disabled participants - mechanisms

Definition of disability under the French law of 11 February 2005

Article 114 of French law no. 2005-102 on equal rights and opportunities, participation and citizenship for people with disabilities defines the concept of disability: "For the purpose of this law, a disability is any limitation of activity or restriction on participation in social life suffered by a person in his or her environment as a result of a substantial, lasting or permanent impairment of one or more physical, sensory, mental, cognitive or psychological functions, a multiple disability or a disabling health condition". 

Airbus Beyond strives to make its training courses accessible to all

Examples of adaptations
