The educational inclusion of students with disabilities represents the exercise of an inalienable right that facilitates the relationships between equals in total autonomy without the mediation of adults, stimulates the sense of belonging to the class group, increases attention and supports emotional, linguistic and cognitive development. The school as a «prevailing living environment» of the person with BCC, must be able to host, support and answer to its best to the communication needs of its students in order to guarantee their effective, social and educational participation. Communicating is a need and a priority for every person and is a fundamental human right. Being part of your student’s AAC project means offering more opportunities for participation, promoting social interactions with peers, increasing access to the curriculum and promoting the development of literacy skills.

It is responsibility of the schools to engage in educational pathways that implement and use AAC tools, strategies and systems with the monitoring, supervision and collaboration of the clinical team of reference.
