Kennedy, Emma-Kate – Support for Learning, 2015
A key principle upon which the Revised Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice 0-25 (2015) is based is children's involvement in decision-making that affects them, and a significant change is the removal of the term "behaviour" and an emphasis on social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. To ensure that…

Anderson, Joanna; Boyle, Christopher – Support for Learning, 2015
Inclusive education (IE) is a term that has been part of the educational discourse in Australia for almost two decades.

Lauchlan, Fraser; Greig, Susan – Support for Learning, 2015
In this paper we examine different aspects of the inclusion debate, including how it has been shaped by the political context in England over the past 30 years. We then give consideration to the key argument that has dominated the inclusion agenda over the last decade: should effective inclusion be considered only as placement in mainstream school…

Waitoller, Federico R.; Thorius, Kathleen King – Support for Learning, 2015
In this article, we provide commentary on the "state of play" of inclusive education in the United States. We focus on the promises and limitations of inter-related accountability- and market-driven policies and Response to Intervention (RTI) (Vaughn and Fuchs, 2003). We argue that these policies and practice have "hopscotched"…

Sankardas, Sulata Ajit; Rajanahally, Jayashree – Support for Learning, 2015
The research reported here was conducted to investigate the perception that people with disabilities find it a challenge to seek employment (Hernandez et?al., 2007). It is suggested that this situation could be due to a lack of specific employment-based training. Hence young adults with special educational needs (SEN) may require job-specific…
