Course objectives
This course connects three disciplines that are close to each other: special education, didactics and school counselling. The focus of interest of all these disciplines is primarily on pupils with special educational needs. In the part dealing with special education students will learn about diagnostics of special educational needs and manage selected processes of work with these needs. They will prepare to pursue inclusive education. In the diagnostic part they will learn about various concepts of pedagogical diagnostics, distinguish various types of diagnoses, achieve an understanding of the qualitative approach to pedagogical diagnostics, grasp the sense of diagnostic measuring in education and learn to recognize selected methods of pedagogical diagnostics. In the final part they will be introduced to the role of external counselling institutions and the work of counselling centres at schools and learn to mediate counselling services.
