This study draws on the experience of the non-profit association "Emozioni Giocate Onlus", based in Genoa, Italy, with its project "The Way to Autonomy". It provides an analysis on the efficacy, sustainability and repeatability of a network education/support model set up to extend social care to students with disabilities. The paradigm focuses on enhancing the actual abilities of those students (recovery). It starts by involving the family, the party activating the process, and needs a structured and formalized network of non-profit organizations foundations, institutions and professional service providers giving support to the school system. One of the main goals of the study is to assess the efficacy ( family satisfaction) and sustainability (in terms of public and private expense) of the intervention structured in this way.
Keywords: Disability, integration, recovery, appropriateness, fundraising.
