Current policy demands that mainstream schools seek to include pupils with special educational needs. This book takes a close look at how exactly this aim can be achieved by examining the various parts of the educational process. The book discusses:

the practicalities of inclusive education

the gap between inclusive policy and practice

a re-configured role for special schools

how the process of inclusion will develop beyond the classroom.

Individuals who have learning difficulties are increasingly finding their place in non-specialist schools. This book considers the ways in which society can continue to support the process of inclusion as full-time education leads on to employment and independent living. The text reflects current developments in thinking and practice, and brings together a broad range of expertise and experience - it brims with enthusiasm for a positive approach that leads on to practical success.


'Overall, this is likely to prove a very useful sourcebook for a curriculum-orientated discussion of inclusion.' - Special Children

'… this book is an impressive contribution to a growing body of literature on inclusion. It clearly lives up to its title, in that it tackles practice-based issues in a combative and authoritative manner.' - British Journal of Educational Studies
