Special Education: Inclusion and Intervention
Special Education ensures that children and youths with special needs learn and develop to their full potential. It emphasises the need for everyone to benefit from education and also enforces school, family and social inclusion for children with special needs, removing the barriers that often exist when it comes to learning, participating and integrating in society.
Inclusion ensures that people who have been excluded have access to the opportunities and resources necessary to participate in social and cultural life, and ensures their right to live a life as an integrated member of a community. By supporting inclusion and social integration of children and youths with disabilities, Social Education is crucial in order for these individuals to develop fully and become independent adults who value themselves and who have a place in society.
This course covers attention to diversity in schools, special educational needs, and how to intervene in order to achieve inclusive education. It also looks at how it is possible to increase awareness in children and youths through leisure and free time activities, and how young individuals with special needs can be integrated into groups through adapted games.
