Learning outcomes

Inclusive Education is a new direction of theoretical and practical research more and more
established at an international and national level.
Nowadays, in the educational and social contexts, the deeply felt problem is how to
turn our attention to the presence of those who have special needs in non-excluding forms,
in particular when such needs are referred to the conditions of disabled people.
Getting involved on inclusion means to change our approach towards the educational systems
preparing them fit for answering to the different typologies of special needs that now characterize the normality of educational contexts.
The ever-growing attention to universal rights and to the fulfilment of the ambition of any people,
even if they are disabled, forces the specialist and the professional staff to carry out their researches
according to an inclusive logic considering both school contexts and working conditions.
What is necessary to get through because of its negative value, it is the way of proceeding on the basis of which the bearers of special needs must be treated according to emergency and extraordinary logics.
Researchers and teachers must study a series of ordinary interventions and devise plans in order to grow the speciality to such an extent to become inclusive . Only in such a way the differences cannot be seen as interferences , but chances of improving the quality of educational systems.
The student who attends the course of Theories and methods of Inclusive Education will learn the main concepts of inclusive Education and will be aware of the theoretical and methodological novelty of this branch of Pedagogy and will be informed of the educational and social practice.
