Abstract

Professional education of persons with disabilities is an important sphere of education enabling psychically and physiologically impaired persons to get economic independence contributing to their integration in society. The quality of professional education for persons with disabilities is realized only in conditions considering specifics of communicative and cognitive activity of the students with different disability categories. The absence of these conditions in universities makes it impossible for this category of students to complete the programs of higher education. As a rule, the contents of the study programs and the study schedule do not take this category of students into consideration.

Therefore, in conditions of unequal starting opportunities the students of this category cannot compare their success with the rest of the class and lose the strife for life goal. There arises the contradiction between the necessity of the providing education to persons with disabilities and inadequacy of the study process organization in university.

Individual study programs are based on humanistic principles, personality- oriented, differentiating, subject approach which makes them an effective mechanism of professional education for persons with disabilities.
