Inclusion in the classroom
The intervention of the FDP Association – Protagonists in Education is based on the development of methods and resources through which teachers and parents can support the development and integration of children regardless of the diagnosis they have
How we bring inclusion to the classroom
Currently, more than 100,000 children in Romania are diagnosed with special educational requirements, their actual number being much higher.
Since classroom teachers and teaching staff do not have the necessary training to address the individual diagnoses of children with learning difficulties, the latter are constantly at risk of exclusion and school abandonment.
The limited access to adapted educational methods makes the educational path of children difficult, thus reaching high rates of school abandonment, especially for preparatory classes/grade I or for grade V. Children with Special Educational Needs (autism, behavioral disorders, dyslexia, dysgraphia, sensory disorders, etc.) do not benefit from adequate support from education specialists, the number of school counselors and itinerant teachers being very small compared to the number of children with SEN.
