Pathway in Introduction to sensory disabilities

Starting from the general principles of special pedagogy, the course shows the elements of educational interventions design, aimed to support the processes of school inclusion. In particular, the training interventions will provide the methodological basis for the correct formulation of tools expected by the legislation, including PEI (Individualized Educational Plan) and PDP (Personalized Learning Plan). A section of the course is dedicated to the use and construction of concept maps.
