I.T. Giordani-Striano

We are technical secondary school situated in good residential area of Naples, with 850 students and 35 teachers. Students attending school come from the most  disadvantaged Neapolitan suburbs populated by families in which their breadwinners are often unemployed or work by the piece.

The educational curricula our institution offers is suitable to those boys who do not have economical possibilities to go to university since they could easily been caught by the delinquency. Our pupils are 14-19,among them there are students with special needs, as it is in this kind of vocational specializing schools that these, not too lucky pupils, apply to. 

Educators are strongly aware that year by year it is becoming easier for our pupils to believe in the fairy tale of Little Red Cap than in the fact that by studying they will find a good job. So we realized that we need to readopt our methodologies in the sense that the theoretical classes our students follows day by day need to be reshaped by
inserting activities able to make our current educational methods closer and closer to a noneducation pathway. 

However, these activities will have to be able to provide our students with the suitable competences our curricula contemplates.Next to normal and common difficulties we have working with teenagers we have recently started to record that the majority of our students after spending long hours at school they are show signs of suffering from anxiety. 

We all know that feeling of stress and anxiety are a part of life and if on one hand some levels of stress can be good as the right kind of stress encourages a person toward charge and growth. On the other hand, when stress and anxiety exist for a long period of time they can became a burden or even a health risk. In other words we have been developing and designing our schools, classrooms, programs and activities so these students can learn and participate together with the other pupils. 

All the care and the professionalism our organisation with its high qualified staff has been appointed INCLUSION LOCAL EDUCATIONAL CENTER in 2012 by our Regional Educational Board, this means that we are referent – tutor of all the other schools in the district. Since 2015 we have been in charged of being AUTISM HELP DESK.
