Community Of Madrid Increases TGD Classrooms In The Region

The Ministry of Education, Universities and Science reported this Monday that the Community of Madrid will increase the number of classrooms for students with pervasive developmental disorders (PDD) by more than 25% in the next school year 2022/23.

This is the largest increase in absolute and percentage terms recorded during the more than twenty years of existence of the program to serve these students and involves the creation of 165 new units and 820 places in public schools , concerted and institutes.

In this way, from the start of classes in September there will be more than 4,000 school places of this type in 813 classes spread over 658 centers in the region .

This significant expansion of the capacity to serve them will mean the hiring of around 330 new specialized workers in this area, in addition to the nearly 1,300 already existing .

The preferential school program for students with PDD began in the 2001/02 academic year with only two schools. The children who are part of it carry out an individualized psycho-pedagogical evaluation carried out by the professionals of the Guidance Network and always with the authorization of the family. Once incorporated, they distribute their weekly school day between the TGD classroom and the ordinary classroom, with the aim of developing their learning capacity and personal and social autonomy to the maximum in an inclusive environment.

To facilitate their attention, the educational centers increase their staff with two professionals, one with a specialist teacher profile in therapeutic pedagogy and/or hearing and language and another higher technician in social integration . Both collaborate with the rest of the teaching staff to jointly offer the most appropriate response to the needs of each student.

The new classrooms will be located in 46 locations, specifically in the capital of Madrid (Arganzuela, Barajas, Carabanchel, Chamartín, Chamberí, Ciudad Lineal, Fuencarral-El Pardo, Hortaleza, Latina, Moncloa-Aravaca, Puente de Vallecas, Retiro, Salamanca, San Blas-Canillejas, Tetuán, Usera, Villa de Vallecas and Villaverde), Alcobendas, Algete, Colmenar Viejo, El Vellón, La Cabrera, Pedrezuela, San Agustín de Guadalix, San Sebastián de los Reyes, Talamanca de Jarama, Valdetorres de Jarama, Alcorcón, Aranjuez, Arroyomolinos, Ciempozuelos, El Álamo, Fuenlabrada, Getafe, Humanes de Madrid, Leganés, Móstoles, Parla, Pinto, Sevilla la Nueva, Serranillos del Valle, Valdemoro, Villa del Prado, Villaviciosa de Odón, Alcalá de Henares, Arganda del Rey, Coslada, Loeches, Mejorada del Campo, Nuevo Baztán, Rivas-Vaciamadrid, Torrejón de Ardoz,Torres de la Alameda, Velilla de San Antonio, Villalbilla, Boadilla del Monte, Collado Villalba, Galapagar, Las Rozas de Madrid, Majadahonda, Pozuelo de Alarcón and Torrelodones.
