What children's perspectives tell us about inclusion

Free CourseFree Course

The underlying premise of this free course, What children's perspectives tell us about inclusion, is that we are all experts in different ways, and that our different experiences and understandings are of value. Inclusive education is presented and discussed as under construction, both in educational settings and as a concept. The materials to be found in this course are largely rooted in the social model of disability and human/disability rights frameworks.

On completion of this unit, you will:

  • have developed an understanding of a context in which listening to the perspectives of children is important in developing inclusive education;
  • have gained an insight into the varying perspectives of children;
  • have reflected on how children's perspectives fit into your developing model of good practice and how they relate to your own perspectives.
