The Department of Psychopedagogical Guidance(DOPP) is the support to the teaching team in the task of detecting and attending diversity, offering an adequate response to the educational needs of all students.
Functions of the DOPP

- Development of preventive and detection programs and development of appropriate protocols and materials.
