School and Disability: Research and Practice in Integration

Book

Integration of disabled students into 'mainstream' schools is an important and controversial issue in Australian education. The topic is undoubtedly complex. This review draws on a wide range of Australian and overseas literature to identify the variety of possible approaches to integration and the key factors that shape their likely success. The volume discusses the relationship between different forms of integration and the class teacher, the role of support services, the school's physical environment and curriculum. This book should be read in conjunction with more recent discussions about inclusive education - its value and practice and the philosophy behind it. Keywords: Education, School age
