The conference will focus on some fundamental issues that have been at the core of the debate on inclusive schools, namely:

  • enhance the role of families in terms of decision-making on education;
  • safeguard the complementarity between the approaches that are made in the school and its projection in the family context;
  • promoting models of empowerment and empowerment of families, so that they can take on effectively an intervening role in schools;
  • how to streamline and facilitate sharing processes among all stakeholders (professionals, families and people with disabilities) in order to provide conditions that promote inclusion;
  • how to organize and implement a school where education is both available to all and tailored to each one;
  • think about the role of resource centres, to ensure operating conditions and financing to ensure their effectiveness;
  • how can families promote and defend the necessary conditions so that education is not exhausted in the compulsory school cycle and extends throughout life.
