Learning Objectives

The course aims to analyze the relationship between special needs education and the professional figure of the educator as master of aid and educational care, in view of inclusion of people with disabilities and "special educational needs". Particular attention will be paid to pedagogical categories of educational aid and care, disability's reduction to promote diversity, inclusion and integration processes in schools and, most importantly, in an extraschool context. Major importance within the course assumes the figure of educator in his/her identity, role and specific skills. A key role will be given to rehabilitative intervention taken by educators and to the most important planning models to be taken to promote an effective accompanying path for diversities in micro and macro contexts of life. It will also afford related issues about special needs teacher and, more specifically, the complexity of skills to enhance inclusive perspective and the current debate on the evolution of the profession itself.
