Abstract: This handbook aims to give practical guidance to support development organizations to mainstream disability into their work. It is primarily intended for VSO programmes, but could be useful to other development actors interested in mainstreaming disability, such as NGOs, government and donors. The handbook is drawn from the experience of VSO DREAM-IT (Disability Rights, Empowerment, Awareness & Mobilisation – Indonesia & Thailand), a programme in which mainstreaming has been a key theme from the beginning. The handbook explains how discrimination works and how to challenge it on an individual basis. It also includes practical hints and tips on interacting with disabled people, and on appropriate language. A process for getting started and managing disability mainstreaming is also outlined and the different elements of VSO’s mainstreaming model are explained.
