This project is centered on the Erasmus+ program’s horizontal priority of “Inclusion and diversity in all fields of education, training, youth and sport” and aims to reduce the social exclusion of students with developmental disorders in the school context.
The main objective of this project is to share experiences and ideas between experienced partners in the educational field so that we can create digital resources aimed at informing and raising awareness about the importance of social inclusion of students with developmental disorders (ADHD, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Dyslexia and other significant problems) at school. These resources are intended to be used by school staff and pre-primary and primary school pupils.
It is intended to:
1. Tackle learning disadvantages, early school leaving and underdeveloped basic skills – students who suffer from problems of exclusion at school because of their limitations are more prone to learning problems, early school leaving and vulnerability in socio-emotional skills (such as creating healthy social relationships with their peers and teachers);
2. Support teachers, school leaders and other educational areas – because we believe that change in the school context starts with school staff, we want to empower them, giving them information and tools to work better with children with developmental disorders and inform all the school on the subject.
The specific objectives are:
1. To create a “best practices manual” with important points for school staff to consider in their daily work, in order to promote the social inclusion of students with developmental disorders;
2. To create other resources aimed at students (pedagogical-recreational content on various issues and how to deal with colleagues who have them: videos and card games);
3. To create an online training course aimed at educational communities on social inclusion in the school context.
All resources will be available in English and in all languages of partner countries – Portuguese and Spanish (with the exception of the training course, which will only be available in English).
AGIFODENT is a non-profit educational institution, established since 2002 in Cenes de la Vega, a small village near the city of Granada, Andalucia – Spain. Our organization owns a VET school and an adult school, both private. We are an intermediary organization that provides schools for mobility projects, job shadowing and training courses at European level.
The project will last one year and will include the participation of teachers, educators, family members and all those who make up the educational community in general and the associations dedicated to the developmental disorders addressed, in particular.
