Mission

KE.D.D.Y. assess students who have not completed their twenty-second (22th) year of age. The assessment is carried out by a three-member multidisciplinary team, composed of a special education teacher (preschool or primary or secondary), a social worker and a psychologist.

 

The assessment is carried out by the interdisciplinary team KE.D.D.Y., which issues an opinion – evaluation report on the definition and description of the difficulty of the student and concrete proposals to better support of the student in the school environment. Furthermore proposes the appropriate school context for the student (special school, Integration classroom, parallel support, learning support) and possibly an Individualized Educational Program (I.E.P.), in which the objectives are clearly identified for an effective educational program.

 

The opinion and the I.E.P.is sent from KE.D.D.Y. to the  parents and school. It is understood that the file (hard copy and electronically)of the student and all his data is strictly confidential and accessible only by the director and the school teachers involved in the student’s educational program
