The contribution of intellectual disabled people and that of the staff responsible for their training replaces high-performance technology by a delicate contribution of sensitivity, appreciation and aesthetic value.

Thanks to the complicity of the therapists and trainers team in charge of the ASPRODIQ Occupational Workshop, the reader enjoys of a unique publication format.
