COMMENTS ON THIS PUBLICATION
The purpose of this guide is to highlight some of the chronic conditions of physical and / or behavioral problems that our students may be affected and provide some tips on meeting their individual needs.
Usefulness of the guide is that all diseases are detailed, and for each condition there are described the manifestations and the main causes.
Also, the teaching strategies are structured so the teachers can easily apply them in the classroom and in the individual activities.
Recognition and acceptance of the need for additional support is vital, but for the student can be difficult to accept this.
Therefore, this guide contains tips for teachers to provide support for additional needs as a right to success, not as a compensatory action in other words, to focus on the positive side of empowerment, not a negative label "special needs ".
