Special Education and Training implements specially designed educational programs, which shall follow the objectives of the Analytical Program and shall aim at the inclusion of pupils. The transition of pupils from level to level of education is a difficult process which brings with it several problems, particularly for children with learning difficulties. In this work we will refer to the concept of transition and its importance for school inclusion. On this basis we will focus on good adaptation and school improvement practices.
