The workshop allows experimenting some working strategies with disabilities in the process of school inclusion.
The course aims to introduce the concepts of disability, developmental disorders, inclusion and to deal with the issue of atypical development especially in relation to the school context.
It also aims to provide tools for planning inclusive courses and designing Individualized Educational Plans functional to didactic work and consistent with current regulations.
The teaching allows students to gain theoretical knowledge on atypical development and face situations with a scientific, inclusive, non-judgmental attitude.
The attendance of the whorkshop allows to read a clinical diagnosis and an ICF-based protocol and be able to describe the areas of interest in the structuring of the Individual Plan.
Basic knowledge of typical development
At present, it is not yet known with certainty whether the course will be held in full or in part in the presence. The structure of the course and the teaching methods will in any case be the same, even if using the different means available in the classroom or remotely.
