Extended program
As a science, Special Teaching has its own independence from the Special Pedagogy and proposes effective interventions based on theoretical models. 
The most important indicators, in Special Teaching, are: recognition of the differences and knowledge about the special needs, straight human relations, cooperation with schoolmates, individual projects open to the lifelong learning, paying attention to the physical education and to the sports. Applicatory contexts of the Special Didactics include the programming curricular (in his phases) and the study of the appropriate methodologies. Beyond integrated education: how to construct an effective project of life. 
The course will tend to highlight the theoretical foundations of teaching, his epistemic statute that finds a clarification in cercle des sciences formulated by Piaget. Didactics has its own strength and a feature; it helps the person in understanding the symbolic universe of human culture. Education can be defined as teaching culture, in order to facilitate the access to the world of language, science, art, history and religion by the person who learns because knows the culture and contribute to producing it.
