Disability and Specific Learning Disorder (SLD)

The University of Catania promotes a new culture of inclusion and active participation of students with temporary or permanent disabilities and/or specific learning disorders (SLD) through the  Centro per l’Integrazione Attiva e Partecipata (CInAP).

CInAP offers the following services to the students with disability/SLD:
  • Inbound orientation
  • Advice on sector regulations
  • Support during the entrance tests
  • Individualized Training Plans
  • Study and attendance support services (didactic and specialist tutoring, psychological counseling, transport, Italian Sign Language interpreting, etc.)
  • Orientation of graduates for job placement, through targeted placement (L.68/99)

The collaboration between CInAP and the Department Referents of the University of Catania gave rise to the Guidelines for the Right of Study for Students with Disability and/or SLD (italian language), a tool for reflection and dialogue in order to disseminate good practices and create equal opportunity conditions, in full compliance with current legislation.

The specialist staff of CInAP - Center for Active and Participatory Integration of our University will be present for the entire duration of the test.
