Many young people with intellectual disabilities lack the possibility of continuing their educational journey once they finish school. Many of them, having the potential to continue forming, end up inserting themselves in sheltered workshops or work environments, hindering their possibilities of training itineraries in a structure within the formal educational system. Even though as a society we have evolved in the recognition of the rights of people with disabilities, we still need to have the concrete means so that these rights can be exercised. The University has the potential to generate an opportunity for these young people.
