The aim of this study is develop a training program for first-grade students, to promote health education and bearers of deficiency inclusion in schools, using Telematic and Teleducation tools. Two schools of the city of Bauru, one public and one private will participate. Each school will select 15 students, aged between 13 and 14 years old. The training program will be divided into two stages, the first by face-to-face and the second at distance. Both will address topics such as the inclusion of the hearing impaired and disabled children due to genetic syndromes. In Step 1, students will answer to a pre-test questionnaire and will receive 4 classes. In Step 2, the students will have access to an electronic tutor (Cybertutor,) in order to supplement their learning and respond to a questionnaire after training, similar to that originally applied, but also evaluating the technological tools used. After the program, participating students will be called "young doctors" and will organize a social action on the subject addressed, to spread the knowledge to the rest of the school, adopting the strategy of the Young Doctor Program. This action is assisted by the researcher both in regard to preparing for the performance.
