The magnitud of inequality tends to vary dramatically not only among every country in the region, but also across each of them. Even though the region produces three times more food than its population needs, approximately one of every six children suffers from growth delay caused by problems with poor nutrition. However, there are some encouraging indicators for the region, for example, the presence of a decreasing rate of infant mortality. Infancy in Latin America Precedents…:  Infancy in Latin America Precedents… Economic and social disparities in Latin America and the Carib are certainly the main cause of health problems among poor people. For example, children who live in the poorest sectors are almost four times more likely to suffer from underweight diseases than children who live in middle-class sectors.

Integration in Chile:  Integration in Chile The integration in regular schools of students with special educational needs associated with some disability, is a relatively recent phenomenon in Chile. During the 60s, Chile, as well as other countries in the region, initiated an educational reform with the purpose of extending the coverage of the educational system to respond to the universalization of basic education for the whole population in school age. In the 70s, to give content to children with disabilities that they were not benefiting of the regular education, was created a modality of special education. In this way a parallel system were consolidate. The special schools were organized concerning certain diagnostic categories. Integration in Chile:  Integration in Chile The influence of the principles of normalization and educational integration, were perceived in Chile on 80´s. On that period beginning the incorporation of concepts as “educational special needs”. From this approach begins the incorporation of pupils with sensory disability in regular school. This period (decade 80) was characterized by the start of punctual experiences of school integration, rather isolated and slightly systematic and frequently product from individual wills from publish like privately institutions. Integration in Chile:  Integration in Chile In 90s, with the advent of a democratic system there happen a series of events that realize major political will in this direction. It´s provided a legal frame that makes possible the acces, permanency and progress of pupils with disabilities in the regular education, including state subsidy for every pupil integrated into a public schools. In 1994, the goverment created FONADIS (National Funds for the Disability) entity that subminister technical and economic supports for the development of favouring projects of integration. Educative Centers and Educational Special Needs:  Educative Centers and Educational Special Needs The current educational system contemplates different options to give response to the educational special needs . It´s necessary to mention: Special schools and centers of training. It is the modality with more path and the most chosen by the parents. They have different studie´s programs for each deficit, wich are, in major or minor degree different from those of the regular education. Educative Centers and Educational Special Needs:  Educative Centers and Educational Special Needs b) Regular Schools With a Integration´s Proyect : Schools that have elaborated a Project and expire with a series of conditions. They can choose to getting a state subsidy extra for every integrated pupil. - With differential groups: Schools that receive pupils with educational special needs "to rest them on their educational process ". They can meet on transitory or permanent form. This schools do not consider necessarily modifying their educational programs. Educative Centers and Educational Special Needs:  Educative Centers and Educational Special Needs c) Schools and Hospitable Classrooms: modality that allows "compensatory" education to pupils with health´s problems, who must remain in hospitable centers for a minimum of three months. Modalities of integration:  Modalities of integration The Chilean regulation, identifies 4 modalities of school integration: 1) Integration and Participation for the pupil in the totality of the school´s activities with a regular course 2) Courses segregated inside the regular school, in many cases without social contact because they have deferred playtime. 3) 80% of participation in the common classroom and the remnant in special units inside or out of the school (20 %) 4) 50% of participation in the common classroom and other one 50 % in special units inside or outside school. Integration in Chile, some results:  Integration in Chile, some results The current situation shows a wide variety of experiences with different results and degrees of development: - Some of these experiences are just a physical acceptance of pupils with disability, without a significat action for favoring their social participation and school learning. Others eperiences make more emphasis on the pupil´s socialization and pay little attention to the development of others issues, arguing that these represent a high exigency for those pupils and the consideration that this aspect is a specialist´s matter. Also there are experiences in which the principle of incorporation is assumed by the whole community and it becomes part of the school´s project. Integration in Chile:  Integration in Chile Since the political integration became official (10 years ago) there have been important progresses on integretation in the society. Nevertheless such progresses have been insufficient so far. Integration keeps on being a local rather than a widespread phenomenon. Integration in Chile:  Integration in Chile The project of integration is increasing, however, it is still scanty in global terms, there are about 740 schools in the whole country (just 3,7 % of the children's whith educational special needs are matriculated) Many children are “integrated” in unappropriate conditions, in special classrooms inside the regular school without benefiting from the school official curriculum and with scanty opportunities of social interaction with their couples. The permanency in the school, in many cases, depends on the teacher´s will and in many cases the responsibility of the learning continues relapsing exclusively into the professional specialist. Integration in Chile:  Integration in Chile There are neither studies nor evaluations that show us how have the integration in the country been developed. One of the assumptions is that the mayority of the pupils currently enjoying the benefits from a integration project, had been already awarded. Just recently were they recognized as students with “special educational needs”. According MINEDUC, in 1999 the pupils with disability’s matriculation in special schools was 54.000 and only 10 % was integrated to regular schools. (5.400 pupils). Most of basic schools with integrated pupils neither have adapted its curricular structure nor have modified its habitual pedagogic guidelines. In Chile, the human and material resources allocated to students are concentrated in special schools. There are not clear mechanisms that facilitate the collaboration and coordination btween special and regular schools. Integration in Chile:  Integration in Chile The trend is that schools conceive the idea of integration as a gradual process of development, therefore, they started with a small number of pupils, in general with slight disabilities and usually coursing the first levels of education. One of the difficulties in Chile is related with a change of attitude and social representation. Negative attitudes and resistance to the integration are linked with social prejudices, for fear of unknown issues and for not be able to handle the difference. Indicators of Disabilities in Chile:  Indicators of Disabilities in Chile In Chile the number of people who suffer from any type of disability is still unknown. While 1996 the information was: about 616.432 persons (150.000 in school age),in 2004 we were said about 2.100.000 persons with disability, 238.539 of them aged between 5 and 26, and just 157.000 are studying 80.000 are not part of the educational system. In synthesis, only the third part of the pupils with disability are registered in the educational system. Indicators of Disabilities in Chile:  The same study indicates that there are about 23.000 children who suffer from disability and aged between 0 and 5. Most people who suffer from any type of disabilities are aged between 30 and 64. They have little chances to afford a lifelong education, a labour formation, or any other posibilities from which obtain social benefits.

The mixes (aborigens from Oaxaca's region, in Mexico) don’t have in their language the word "integration", not because a language’s limitations, but because in their culture anybody is excluded from the activities of the community … Slide37:  THE END
