Inclusive School Design: Accommodating Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in Mainstream Schools. Building Bulletin 94.
Hrekow, Mary; Clark, Helen; Gathorne-Hardy, Flora
This bulletin discusses how to accommodate pupils with special educational needs and disabilities in mainstream schools, presents issues concerning physical access, and addresses how to meet the design needs of pupils with sensory, learning, and emotional and behavioral difficulties. Practical recommendations are included along with five case studies that demonstrate how becoming more inclusive can bring benefits to the lives of all pupils who study, rest, and play in mainstream schools. Different forms of practical provision, from whole school issues to the detail of furnishings, equipment, and auxiliary aids, are also examined. A list of additional information sources is included.
