PhD project

Psychopedagogical follow-up as a facilitating instrument for the inclusion of students with disabilities in higher education
Margarida Belchior

This thesis project aims to analyze policies for the inclusion of students with disabilities in higher education. As well as the psychopedagogical monitoring at the University can help both in the evaluation of the difficulties presented, as what measures should be taken to minimize them. The inclusion of people with disabilities in society and, especially in Higher Education, is a complex process and full of challenges, challenges that with the Inclusion Laws are advancing to better welcome those who have a disability, want to study and train to work in the area that you so much dream of realizing. The challenges of a person with a disability to successfully complete the course are numerous according to the literature. It is believed that the follow-up services offered by higher education institutions, when they exist, help academics to assuage their insecurities.
