Psychology and Inclusive Education

Support for the development
and learning of students

The Department of Psychology and the Inclusive Education Support at Papião emphasizes the importance of partnership between all elements of the educational community in building an inclusive school and in supporting the development and learning of all students.

The department has the collaboration of two psychologists, who are part of the Multidisciplinary Team to Support Learning and Inclusion at Papião, and who work together with other elements of the educational community – pedagogical directors, teachers, external specialists who support students and parents – in the sense of promoting the well-being and success of students.

Within the scope of this department, and to ensure adequate inclusion and conditions of equity for students whose Portuguese is not their mother tongue or the language of schooling, the school provides the services of teachers to support the learning of Portuguese as second Language, who are responsible for the diagnosis and monitoring of students.
