The Individualized Education Plan in the training of kindergarten and primary school Italian teachers


The training of competent professionals, who in their role as general or specialized teachers, support pupils in the development of their affective-relational, cognitive and communication skills, as well as in the acquisition of autonomy, is an essential factor for the design and the management of inclusive school processes. In this contribution we investigate the ideas that the students of Primary Education at the University of Florence have formed concerning disability and inclusive intervention. Through a short survey and a conclusive questionnaire (n=264) we aimed at reflecting upon the role that every teacher plays in creating inclusive contexts and upon the necessity for all future teachers to acquire skills related to the use of the ICF and the Italian Individualized Education Plans.
