The innovative Inclusive Assessment Map – I AM will be a tested and evaluated tool that will provide teachers and educators with solid guidance for adapting the school environment for inclusion. I AM will offer “state of the art” solutions that have been tested by a team of international experts from universities and school boards together with teachers, students and parents. Through the development of the innovative “Inclusive Assessment Map – I AM”, the necessary steps will be taken to transform the ICF-CY (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth) into a user-friendly, applicable and analytical system for teachers.
I AM’s condensed overview of the items of the ICF-CY provides a viable support for all professionals (teachers, educators, parents) to make necessary adaptations to the students’ learning environment. Students are enabled to develop a self-concept based on an “individual reference norm orientation” and are thus better able to develop self-efficacy and a more positive self-concept.
