Abstract

Objective of the study was to analyse the content of a practical testing system to monitor the adaptation process of students with physical and health disabilities in the inclusive professional education environments. A set of mental and physiological condition rating tests was applied in the study to type the adaptation models of students with disabilities in the academic environments, the models being determined by both the individual traits and mindsets and the objective influences of the social environments. The study data were applied to rate effects of the physical disabilities on the individual adaptation in the inclusive education environments. As was found by the study, influences of the sympathetic and hyper-sympathetic mechanisms of the autonomous nervous system tend to grow by the end of an academic year and cause negative effects on the disabled students’ adaptability to physical and intellectual loads. The negative effects were shown in the growing Мо indices, variation range, tension index, and falling Mo amplitude. It should be noted that the physically most inactive group of disabled students was found most vulnerable to the negative effects of the inclusive education environments and the least adaptable to the latter.
