Abstract

The article proposes a study based on a narrative approach that uses Life Stories as a data collection tool to provide teachers with the opportunity to connect events, contexts, emotions and choices related to students with disabilities, thus building a collective memory. This is based on the assumption that the tools available to date, in particular the Individualised Educational Plan, are inadequate to "narrate" the complexity that characterises the existential trajectories and educational paths ofstudents with disabilities. The scenario regarding the recruitment of Learning Support, generalist and subject teachers, who are often protagonists of an annual turn-over, makes it impossible to have a deep knowledge of the student. Finally, the paper presents the Computer-Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis software program as a useful tool for teachers for a thematic analysis of Life Stories.
