Moriña, Anabel – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2017
Implementing the principles of inclusive education within higher education can be challenging. Inclusive education was originally developed for younger students, prior to its application within higher education. However, as more students with disabilities successfully complete their early schooling, the need to move towards inclusive practices…

Seale, Jane – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2017
In this article, I use the lens of voices and silences to frame my review of research in the field of disability and postsecondary education. I argue that we need to view research in this field as a necessarily political act that seeks to turn voices of silence into voices of change. Researchers therefore need to rethink their role in order to…

Reindal, Solveig M. – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2016
Inclusive education emerged as an idea within United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's Special Education Unit and was presented as a new way ahead at the "World Conference on Special Needs Education" in Salamanca in 1994. Since then, it has been on the global agenda as the overriding political objective within…

There is an increasing interest in the role of peers in facilitating the social interaction skills of pupils with autism spectrum disorder through peer-mediated interventions (PMI). Several reviews provide promising evidence for the effectiveness of this approach; however, there has been limited consideration of the range of outcome foci and…

Meral, Bekir Fatih – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2015
Turkey regulates the special education of students with disabilities and, particularly, those who have intellectual disabilities (ID) based on international and national legal texts. However, the gap between law and practice cannot be denied. The existence of obstacles to special education for students with disabilities or ID continues in Turkey.…

Isaksson, Joakim; Lindqvist, Rafael – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2015
In Sweden, as in many other countries, inclusion has been on the political agenda for a long time and has served as a blueprint and guiding principle for practical work in school. However, inclusive education has, by and large, been associated with special education measures, which seriously limit the chances of achieving the vision of inclusion.…

Seale, Jane – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2014
The role of supporters in facilitating access to and use of technology by people (adolescents and adults) with learning disabilities has not been the primary focus of much of the research that has been undertaken to date. The review of literature presented in this paper suggests, however, that issues of support, risk and safety are emerging as…

Smyth, Fiona; Shevlin, Michael; Buchner, Tobias; Biewer, Gottfried; Flynn, Paula; Latimier, Camille; Šiška, Jan; Toboso-Martín, Mario; Rodríguez Díaz, Susana; Ferreira, Miguel A. V. – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2014
This paper seeks to compare the evolution of inclusive education policy in the four countries of an EU-funded research project (QualiTYDES) operating under the shared policy environment of the UN, EU and European Commission. A shared policy cannot of course be assumed to result in common legislative or provisional outcomes at national level. The…

Lewin, David – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2014
This article examines the relevance of modern moral philosophy to education, with particular reference to special educational needs. Where moral philosophers explore the tension between utilitarian and deontological reasoning, they often consider the balance between the rights of the individual and the benefits or costs for the majority. I argue…

Stangvik, Gunnar – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2014
Inclusion and participation for students who fall behind are promoted internationally. These policies are challenged by neoliberal policies that aim to educate productive and self-capitalising subjects for the marketplace. The article shows immanent conflicts between these policies. A neoliberal curriculum distinguishes the abled from non-abled,…

Arthur-Kelly, Michael; Sutherland, Dean; Lyons, Gordon; Macfarlane, Sonja; Foreman, Phil – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2013
Positive changes to pre-service teacher education programmes (PSTEPs), driven in part by changing worldwide policy frameworks around inclusion, are occurring, albeit slowly. After briefly reviewing international trends and key policy and legislation platforms in New Zealand and Australia, this paper explores some of the challenges in enhancing…

Andreasson, Ingela; Asp-Onsjö, Lisa; Isaksson, Joakim – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2013
Since 1995, all Swedish compulsory schools have had a legal obligation to establish individual educational plans (IEPs) for pupils with special educational needs. However, previous research shows that there are a number of issues associated with how these plans are used in schools' overall work and identifies a discrepancy between educational…

Schwab, Susanne; Gebhardt, Markus; Ederer-Fick, Elfriede M.; Gasteiger Klicpera, Barbara – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2012
The "Attitudes Towards Integration Scale" (ATIS) assesses the attitude of the general public towards the school integration of children with disabilities. The scale was empirically created in a pilot study (n=351) and later used to survey 2158 people. The data from both surveys are analysed in the present paper; the results show that the…
