The same need to use diverse approaches applies for validation for people with disabilities. It is also a right for them to engage on validation processes, there are a lot of people with great knowledge! I would like to share our experience on validation for people with disabilities, a project we run from 2008 and still maintain successfully, with big institutional effort and the support of our national agencies.

Dear all,

This topic is very interesting. I'm a special needs teacher in La Spezia CPIA school in Italy. It's a school for adult people. There are a lot of  Adults with Special Needs.

I usually do a multisensorial didactics with the use of PC because technology enhances learning.

I am interested about good pactice, projects or initiatives on the topic.

Best whishes,

Hi all, thank you for a very interesting discussion. There is so much to take away and think about I will have to return to work for now but will reread everything later. For those of you who are interested in policy issues, here is a link to research I worked on with Maynooth University in 2015. The research looked at how adult learning policy was implemented across six EU regions including Ireland. bye for now

A project that has been developed for 5 years and through this project, ECCA could offer these groups an educational adapted offer accessible from the internet and which allows this population to improve their educational level at their own pace, without any physical barriers or fixed-schedules

If you want to check the adaptations you can see it here.

Dear all,

we're now coming to an issue that I find extremely important: strategies! So my question is: Is there a strategy at the policy level (National / regional / local)?  (If yes, what do you think about it?) Do you think a strategy would be useful?

In Flanders, the M-decree sets the stage for inclusive education in primary and secondary education. The principles of this decree are fine but the implementation is open for improvements. This movement towards inclusive education was started years ago, before the financial crisis. A change of policy should imply extra funding during the transition. The financial crisis create the oposite. Inclusive education became a less attractive area as opposed to the creation of jobs, jobs, jobs. Students move from special education to more inclusive education but the system fails to supply for enough resources to do so in a properly manner.

Very interesting! It seems that indeed the transitions between organisations and sectors is highly problematic. And the job & growth orientation doesn't help!

Dispite all methods, research shows that the teacher makes the difference. Consequently, teacher training programs that form the teachers of tomorrow should have a focus on inclusive education. I have no idea if that is the case. 

If future teachers are not prepared to offer inclusive education, we can hardly blame them for not doing so afterwards. 

So, what is the practice in your countries? Are teacher training programs in higher education paying attention to inclusive education?
