"Just as gender is more than chromosomes and race is more than skin color, disability is more than an individual impairment" (Ferguson & Nusbaum, E., 2012). This course will go through all forms of disabilities. You will get to know how local schools are dealing with the differ issues both at an educational and legal level.

 

The course will also provide you with tools to foster inclusivity and to create an environment in which non-disabled students can work with disabled ones in order to know each other better and to learn to appreciate their differences.

Objectives

This course wants to:

  • Help aknowledge different disabilities in all of its forms;

Methodology

 

Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.
