Abstract

The following article presents the characterization of the Integral Foundation for the Special Child - FINE (Pomasqui, Ecuador) users and the selection of pedagogical models to guide the design, monitoring, evaluation, and formulation of training plans for the development of socio-cognitive skills in people with intellectual disabilities. To define the socio-cognitive characteristics and needs of users, their records and the cards issued by the Ministry of Public Health - MSP was reviewed by the foundation. Among the most relevant results, it was determined that the study population requires extensive support systems considering the various dimensions of human functioning. The use of an educational model based on multiple intelligences accompanied by a socio-ecological disability model that emphasizes the fit between the person and the environment, with a multidimensional approach, is recommended according to the new disability paradigm.
