VITAL, Andréa Aparecida Francisco; MICCAS, Camila; DUARTE, Cintia Perez  and  D'ANTINO, Maria Eloisa Famá. Evaluation of students with Down syndrome: cognitive-linguistic educational and functional aspects. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.3, pp. 177-188. ISSN 1516-3687.

The objective of this research was to establish a profile of four students with Down syndrome enrolled in the regular school system assessing the cognitive-linguistic potentialities, knowledge acquisition, and academic and functionality performance. For this, we confront the data obtained from the three types of assessments obtaining a profile of students. We note that, regardless of the ages and grades in which they were enrolled, no qualitative differences between assessments of intelligence, knowledge acquisition, academic content and functionality were observed. It is concluded that research, ongoing evaluation, analysis and recycling of educational resources and planning of educational activities must be in a constant search for improvement in meeting the needs of students with Down syndrome.

Keywords : inclusive education; assessment; Down syndrome; cognition; functionality.
