Special Education Department


Special Education Department

As all the teaching levels are inclusive (nursery, pre-school and Cycle 1), Associação Infante de Sagres has formed a Special Education Department with experienced and specialized professionals.
The SED is formed by: 6 teachers of Special Education; 6 specialized technicians and 1 psychologist.
From the 350 children that attend AIS, 45 have Special Education Needs and they are completely integrated with activities which are adapted to their functionality profile, not only on their daily activities, but also on school trips or even at the beach program.
Our mission is to educate including and the difference can be seen in the complementarity.
We assume and believe that if all the children with or without problems are properly monitored during their school years, they will attain success. Parents/guardians will be the first educators, although the cooperation between home and school is crucial in all the education process.
