Praia, Sep 17 (Inforpress) – The national director of Education assured Inforpress Wednesday that students with special educational needs (SEN) will have a “specific, individualized response and extra attention” in this atypical return to school due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Two weeks before the students return to the classrooms for a new school year, Eleonora Sousa informed that the Ministry of Education (ME) has already outlined some guidelines should be followed by the multidisciplinary teams to support inclusive education, which exist in all counties in the country.
Even in a normal situation the ME gives special attention to students who need more care and in this atypical situation the indication is no different, she stated.
“This group will have to have a much more specific, individualized response and extra attention”, she said, guaranteeing that the same attention will be given to students from risk groups, who suffer from some respiratory disease or other health problems.
