Review of Special and inclusive education: A research perspective.

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticlepeer-review


Reviews the book, Special and Inclusive Education: A Research Perspective edited by Therese Day and Joseph Travers (2012). The book is organized around responses to diversity, access to the curriculum and collaboration for inclusion. Part 1, Responding to Diversity, includes chapters that scope school responses to students with mild-learning difficulties, dyslexia and autism, as well as drawing on students’ voices, teachers’ beliefs and issues of transition in primary school and post-primary school settings. Part 2, Access to the Curriculum, includes chapters that scope communication and language, literacy, pedagogical repertoire and teachers’ constructions of inclusive practice. Part 3, Collaboration, include chapters that highlight the importance of collaboration for meaningful inclusion. This is a positive book that shows how schools and teachers can make real differences to the education and lives of children with special educational needs, and gives many ideas about how schools can become more inclusive in their organization and practices.
