School for all: experiences of municipal public schools with inclusion of students with disabilities, ASD, GDD and high ability/giftedness

This publication deals specifically with the educational integration of people with deficiency, Autistic spectrum disorders (ASD), global developmental disorders (PDD), and high skills / giftedness by showing the experiences of Brazilian municipal governments with their public schools. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006), adopted by ratified by Brazil with constitutional status in 2009 is the basis of the efforts of the United Nations to contribute to ensuring the rights of this group. This Convention - which was the first global human rights treaty of the 21st century - turns the issue of disability a priority in both social and cultural terms. It introduces the barriers and limitations regarding the access to fundamental rights by people with disabilities. It shows a new approach and points new needs for public policies based on the perception that people with disabilities have rights and they are not individuals whose condition imposes access restrictions to full civil rights and obligations.
