The organizations taking part in the project aim to build a long-term partnership that enables them to get to know each other’s experiences and practices in the field of nursing and integrated education of infants, children and young adults with special needs. The cooperation includes institutions of formal and non-formal education, vocational training and representatives of relevant national authorities, that is, all kind of actors that play an important role in the education and social inclusion of the disabled persons. The research includes gathering data on the different institutions and organizations that deal with the education of above groups, on how and by whom this education is carried out. Within the framework of the project we intend to analyse data concerning the practice of inclusive-type education in the partner countries, the factors enhancing or hindering its use, the most successful methods and possible resolutions of the obstacles, from the point of view of both the disabled persons and their social environment.
Besides early childhood, the other very significant and vulnerable period for disabled people is the moment when they leave the “sheltered” life within formal education. Currently this age group doesn’t receive proper guidance and advice to achieve the necessary competences to enter the labor market as potential employees.
The main reason behind this is the fact that professionals dealing with the above mentioned groups of disabled youth didn’t themselves received the necessary training to assist properly the inclusion process.
