The Visual Thinking 4 You(th) project, has the general objective of promoting the social inclusion of dyslexic young people between 13 and 19 years old, through visual thinking, which consists in transmitting and exposing ideas through simple and easily recognizable images. The objective of this method is to improve the learner’s learning level by allowing him, through the use of images, to better understand ideas, define objectives, identify problems and generate new concepts and it is particularly effective for those who have cognitive peculiarities such as dyslexic people. In this context, the socio-educational animator, a figure targeted by the project activities, proves to be a key element for the involvement of these young people.


  • Improvement of the degree of knowledge by the youth workers of dyslexia and the potential of visual thinking as a tool for inclusion and learning.

  • Construction of communication strategies to engage dyslexic youth ages 13-19 within youth organizations that offer innovative and complementary learning approaches to formal education.

  • Creation of learning methodologies focused on visual thinking specifically for dyslexic youth in order to increase their degree of integration and learning.


The ideal participants for this training course are youth workers involved with people with dyslexia, and who have experience with working with that specific group. But, all youth workers above the age of 18 are welcome to apply.


In December 2003, a group of young people decided to organize a sports event in Tirana. It was a simple activity that brought together 12 young people with disabilities and other young people. Sport was a means to have fun but also to break down the isolation barriers that characterized the group of young people with disabilities. The young people met several more times after the event and in May 2004 they decided to create Beyond Barriers. Beyond Barriers Association was then legally registered in the Tirana district court on 30 June 2004, as the first organization of young people with disabilities and other young people who would work for the empowerment of youth in the national level.

Now, after several years of work, BBA has accumulated a great experience in working with young people at the local, national, regional and European level. Through the years the target group of the association has expanded in order to give space to all young people from Albania to be part of its programs and projects. Nevertheless the main focus of the association’s work remains on young people with fewer opportunities, with the scope to offer them a chance for empowerment and to be active citizens of the community where they live.


The accommodation will be covered by the organizers. The chosen participants will get detailed information about the accommodation after the selection process is finalized.

During the stay, food will be prepared by experienced cooks, provided at the venue. Three meals and two coffee breaks per day will be provided.
