Abstract

The article is dedicated to a highly topical issue of raising the effectiveness of teaching upper secondary school students with cerebral palsy foreign languages by means of the selection and classification of web applications. According to the Law of Ukraine «On General Secondary Education», SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) students can study in mainstream schools (and namely, in special / inclusive classes or in distant / evening / extramural educational settings), and also in special schools (meant for children who need special education due to their physical impairments or mental disability), among which there are also education-and-rehabilitation centers (for children who need regular rehabilitation because of the complexity of their impairments). The implementation of the Social model of disability, started in Ukraine, presupposes the gradual transition from segregation to inclusion of SEND children. It can be implemented by means of numerous adjustments in mainstream educational settings so that all the barriers are removed, unless the modification of learning is viewed as the best choice. Some of the adjustments mentioned can be introduced by means of web-applications interpreted in this research as users’ computer programs that empower them to solve certain tasks. Pursuing the aim of the article the author classifies web applications by the following criteria: their location (on a special web platform or on a user's personal computer); the field of usage (whether they are supposed to be applied by general public or in a special field only). The latter include applications, designed for teaching foreign language. These are classified according to the competencies that they enable to develop (namely, language and speech ones). Finally, the web applications are grouped according to barriers and special educational needs typical for upper secondary school students with cerebral palsy. The results obtained are generalized in tables suggested.
