What children's perspectives tell us about inclusion

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.
