About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. Significant reform has occurred over the last three decades with regard to educating individuals with additional needs. This unit explores the history and current position on disability as well as philosophy, policy, legislation, and practice around educating individuals with additional needs internationally. The research literature examining the benefits and barriers to inclusive education will be analysed. Students will develop skills of critical review required to evaluate the research in the field. Lastly, the unit addresses the ways in which educational settings can be designed to be more responsive to learners with additional needs and how students can promote inclusion through organisational change.
