Inclusive education: Knowing what we mean

Introduction

Unit image

This unit introduces you to the contested area of educational inclusion. You will look at differing perspectives on inclusion, in particular the way that medical and social models have influenced and shaped current thinking. You will also think about barriers to inclusion and the difference between integration and inclusion. In addition, you will consider some of the key documents, such as the Salamanca Statement, that underpin current thinking in this area.

This material is from our archive and is an adapted extract from Researching inclusive education: values into practice (E848) which is no longer taught by The Open University.
