ACCESS TO THE E-LEARNING PLATFORM:
Slider

We offer a virtual course, easily accessible through an e-learning platform, to train pre-primary education teachers from existing centers so they can transform their classrooms into inclusive ones, for children between 1 to 6 years old with mild to severe visual impairment.

This course is based on the conviction that Integrated Education offers more possibilities towards children’s psychosocial development than a segregated one. The goal of this type of education is the inclusion of students with visual impairment, so they are capable of participating and interacting normally with other children without visual disabilities, and also competing in the same productivity and efficiency conditions in the future. Therefore, this course do not focus on early childhood education curricular issues, but it provides essential training to work with students with special needs through an innovative methodology that tries to fully integrate these students along with non-visually impaired students so they develop the social skills and self-confidence that will be paramount for, in the short term, their access to primary education, and for their social and labor inclusion in the future.
