López explained that for there to be "real inclusion" a Special Employment Plan for People with Disabilities must be put in place to ensure their "economic independence and autonomy".

He has also said that the PP will commit to carrying out an Early Care Law, which will mean an increase in the budget of "at least" 25 million, "a new model based on the recognition and support of families and the need to a comprehensive intervention.

"The smallest cannot depend on the greater or lesser sensitivity of the Board, which does not provide the necessary resources, such as special monitors or specific classrooms in educational centers." And he has concluded, “in Andalusia, students with disabilities continue to be educated, distributing them to those centers that have resources. The PP will guarantee the free choice of center for people with disabilities and their families, providing all centers supported with public funds with the material and personal resources that respond to their needs and allow them to exercise their right to an inclusive and normalized education. ”.
