V. Thomopoulou

Special Education (GREECE)
The major aim of special education, in general, is to integrate individuals with general developmental disorders into the standard world, our world, in order to make them able to keep up with it and with us. The accurate definition of the educator as well as of the specialized personnel’s aims- of the interdisciplinary team, the psychologist, the speech therapist, the work therapist is very important in special education so that difficulties are located, ways of facing these difficulties are under discussion, progress is evaluated and new aims are afterwards set. A case study of a student with autism is illustrated by the present paper. The student’s stages are carefully analyzed: from adjustment to the new place, namely the school, up to his learning and interpersonal skills development. In the end, the significance of the interdisciplinary approach to the autism developmental disorder as well as the continuation of the course at home under the parental assistance is accentuated.
