The ICF-CY Therapy Care project is an Erasmus+ K2 Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices action European project that deals with the quality of the teaching and care services offered to children with special needs who are integrated into normal schools.
The number of children with learning difficulties and disabilities of autism spectrum increases every year. Every day psychologists and special educators meet problems addressing the needs of this group of children. The projects aims at developing an educational approach to reduce the disparities in tackling the problem of integrating children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) into regular schools. The project focuses on children aged 6-12 years old with SEN, in particular with Autism / autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) or Specific Learning difficulty (SpLD). It will use the ICF-CY classification as a basis to develop a set of tools that will assist psychologists, special educators and teachers in assessing the capabilities of children with SEN, set therapy targets and assessments benchmarks. The tools created by the ICF-CY - basis for therapeutic care project will take the form of a Questionnaire to establish and recognize the learning difficulties of special needs children and a Card for the planned therapy and outcomes, both helping professionals to monitor and assess the progress and achievement of the children.
