    Behavioural style represents the behaviour of an individual that enables the maintenance and enhancement of health. The most important factors that shape it are a healthy diet, regular physical activity, proper mental health, adequate quantity of sleep and a proper living environment. It is important that the individual avoids risk factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and excessive sitting. In the introduction to the master's thesis, concepts related to special needs are presented. We defined mobility impairment and cerebral palsy as four of the five girls interviewed have it. The following are some characteristics of adolescence, and then we defined a healthy behavioural style, its protective factors, and risk factors. In the empirical part, we answered the research questions asked and presented the results of five in-depth interviews with female secondary school students studying in one of the specialized institutions where the Adapted Vocational Secondary Education (VSE) and Vocational-Technical Secondary Education Programme (VTSE) for the Physically Disabled is implemented. The interview was designed using the CINDI questionnaire (Health-related Behavioural Style 2020). Using the technique of predominantly qualitative analysis, we analysed and described the behavioural styles of female secondary school students on the basis of in-depth answers. We found that female secondary school students mostly have developed habits that adequately affect their health. By identifying which are the risk factors that stand out the most with these girls, we were able to make certain recommendations on how to improve their behavioural styles.
