KALLIL ASSIS TAVARES

HURRAY !!!  One student, 21, is the first with Down syndrome to pass the entrance exam at the Federal University of Goiás - Brazil.

Kallil Assis Tavares, 21, is the first student with Down syndrome to joining UFG (Universidade Federal de Goiás). He was approved for geography, on the campus of Jatai, a town 325 kilometers from Goiânia. The competition was 1.2 applicants per vacancy.

The choice and decision in taking exams were his own, who passed on his first selection process.

Tavares had had no differentiated assessment and ran "on equal terms" with the other candidates.

The family is quiet on the new stage of life of Tavares. There is nothing "special" planned for the first day of class.

Tavares has always attended a regular school.


Saurce: UOL 

Brazil has a historical debt to the disabled that, according to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), they represent 24% of the national population.
