Attention to the diversity of students with ICI in the classroom may be influenced by factors such as teachers' knowledge of ICI and their training in the area. In this sense, some studies have warned of the existence of stereotypes on the part of teachers that make it difficult to identify and care for students with ICI, since attitudes have an impact on the way in which the teaching-learning process is developed and its effectiveness (Lassing, 2009; Lacambra et al., 2019; Plunkett & Kronborg, 2011; Seade et al, 2019). The main aim of the symposium is to showcase various studies that have investigated perceptions of learners with ICI, their creativity, self-concept and education. The results of these studies will focus on the perceptions that both ICA and non ICA students have about these students and the influence of these perceptions on their self-concept; and on the attitudes that undergraduate students of Early Childhood and Primary Education have about support needs, the level of opposition towards these students, their degree of rejection, the attitude towards special homogeneous groups, classes and schools, as well as school acceleration. In addition, results will be presented on teachers' perceptions of variables linked to ICI such as emotional intelligence and creativity.

Papers will be presented on:

- Perception of future teachers' talent.

- Perception of student creativity from the teacher's point of view.

- Validation of the BarOn for teachers: agreement and disagreement in the perception of Emotional Intelligence.

- Stereotypes of students with ICI in their self-concept: a preliminary comparative study.
