People with disabilities too have the capacity of achieving knowledge and skills to a high degree if given the chance. It might take longer than in the classic way of teaching to reach that point but it is sure that it is worth to try. We here at cottolengo have experienced it and are enjoying the results. Among these are to be mentioned that most of our children have learned the sign language. Some of them can express themselves also in words and writing. Others express in a beautiful way through the skills that have been developed such as making candles and/or figurines.
At present we have 20 students that can avail of two spacious classrooms. They are studying in groups of 5 or 6 per class from monday to friday.
