Pedagogia speciale e approccio inclusivo: una nuova pedagogia o il guadagno di una nuova prospettiva?


  • Angelo Lascioli



Today, the inclusive approach represents an indispensable perspective, which has enriched and expanded the cultural and scientific horizon of several disciplines, including Special Pedagogy. However, unlike other disciplines, which in addressing the themes of their studies and research make use of the inclusive perspective, Special Pedagogy is now debating whether to assume inclusion in its object of study, to the point of renaming itself "Pedagogy of Inclusion". The author does not believe that this hypothesis should be pursued, both for historical and epistemological reasons, especially if this renaming would move into the background of theoretical and scientific reflection the research and studies on disability, and just to avoid that the special pedagogical identity could be dispersed.
