The structural unit of the Precarpathian National University has been implementing principles of inclusion into teacher training since its foundation. Persons with disabilities are among its students and faculty. The principle of universal design is manifested in the modification of the infrastructure for access of students with special educational needs and disabilities to the premises, training equipment and materials. Alternative teaching and assessment tools for students are used. The initiatives of students, parents and teachers are being supported in the introduction of new approaches to teaching, research and leisure activities, which involve equal opportunities for all.
The training of future primary school teachers and preschool education educators for English language specialization, the speech therapist has an inclusive component. Reading disciplines from special pedagogy, trainings, methodical seminars, conferences with the participation of international and domestic experts in the field of inclusion and personality formation, academic internships and exchanges of experience of teachers and students in Ukraine and abroad are taking place.
College students report at conferences and seminars, disseminate inclusive ideas and provide resource support to educational institutions and communities at their places of residence, create and present educational and educational guides, presentations, and video on inclusive topics.
