I graduated from University Institute Avepane in Venezuela in 2003 with a bacheelor's degree in Special Education Needs Teaching and a minor in Intellectual Disabilities and Learning Difficulties. Later on I finished my postgraduate in Neuro-rehabilitation in Spain in 2006. During my studies, I had the opportunity to practise in the area of rehabilitation for patients with spinal cord injury, acquired brain damage and other serious neurological disabilities. I also had the opportunity to develop and follow a program for employment opportunities for the inclusion of people with disabilities into the workplace. I have been working in Special Educational Needs for over 9 years, integrating children and adults with special needs into mainstream schools and the work environment for the promotion of a more inclusive society.
