Lo Monte has adapted its facilities and services so they can be enjoyed equally by the hearing impaired
Lo Monte campsite in Pilar de la Horadada, in accordance with the UN Convention on Rights for People with Disabilities, has adapted its facilities and services so they can be enjoyed equally by the hearing impaired.
Over 300,000 people in Spain have some kind of difficulty hearing, which makes up about 18% of disabilities. The measures introduced at Lo Monte were supervised by the Valencian Federation of Deaf People (FESORD).
They include translating its website into sign language, qualified personnel to attend to deaf people, alarm and notification systems that use lights, and adapted protocols.
This complements the policy of total accessibility that Lo Monte campsite has developed since it opened in 2011, which has won various prizes at national and European levels.
