Abstract


Abstract: The main purpose of the program “Public Health” is to guarantee healthy European society. Integration and inclusion of challenging children in local after-school programs is going out of the human rights perspective of people with disabilities and is aimed to their full health-social rehabilitation. Movement activities, and especially controlled movement activities, are defined as one of the most obvious and unquestionable tools for influencing positively human health over life (Velemínský, 2011). The aim of the study is a comparability analysis of availability in the after-school movement activities for children with hearing or visual disabilities (8 - 15 years old) in South Bohemia region of Czech Republic and in regions of selected EU states (Bulgaria, Slovenia and Great Britain). The integration process is viewed as the health-social model. The investigative research work was oriented on accessibility of controlled movement activities for challenging children and to uncover social, economic, material, organizational barriers in selected regions. It was analysed the quality of promotion and variety of movement activities offered for challenging children. Methods of exploration, interview, document analysis and content analyses of regions information systems were used during the investigative research.
