An action strongly desired by Education Councilor Elena Chiorino, who saw a regional investment of 237 thousand euros, whose main goal is “Leave no one out of school, and leave the world of work behind. In fact, the initiative aims to support all those realities and education centers that specialize in sensory disabilities that are precisely designed to meet the needs of deaf students and support local schools. The common goal – the commissioner continues – is to break down communication barriers to initiate the integration of the deaf and the community of the school, the place where the first basis for learning and relational processes are formed.“.

Despite the efforts, the pedagogical paths that are implemented do not always meet the needs of the students with a disability due to the lack of specialized figures, such as.The contributions we have made available as counselors are made available directly for the year 21/22 and will support schools to reduce the impact on pupils of all those language barriers that plague children and adolescents prevent the easy access to all useful tools both for their own schooling but also in advance of their career of tomorrow“.
