The Trampolín Programme is intended for adolescents with severe behavioural disturbances, and who are considered by the school authorities as the group with more difficulties for ordinary educational intervention. The present study has 2 purposes: a) to examine the behavioural, sociodemographic, family and educational profile of participants in Trampolín programme; b) to analyse the efficacy of Trampolín programme, assessing several educational, social and family indicators. To do this, a selected sample of 43 secondary school pupils from Asturias (Spain) with a mean age of 13.35 years (SD = 1.06), of which 41 (95.3%) were males. The study results revealed, on the one hand, that the sample had some social, family and individual characteristics, which help to identify and describe a distinctive multidimensional profile and, on the other hand, that the Trampolín Programme achieved several improvements in certain indicators considered suitable for the development of these children. In addition to this, a comprehensive description of the responses used in schools was carried out.
