University and Disability: An Italian Experience of Inclusion
Maggiolini, Silvia; Molteni, Paola
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v26 n3 p249-262 Fall 2013
The University education is a very important step in the process of growth of each person. During this period we acquire a specific professional preparation and also have many opportunities to develop skills that are essential for adult life. In recent years the access opportunities for disabled persons to academic education in Italy have greatly increased, thanks to some legislative initiatives that supported the implementation of important measures to protect the right to study. The article sets out some reflections on the services and opportunities offered by the Italian University system. The Centre for Inclusion of Students with Disability and Dyslexia of Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan is presented as an example case. Further areas for research and policy development are discussed.
