An Analysis Tool for School Inclusion for Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Ryan, David
Child Care in Practice, v14 n4 p371-380 Oct 2008
The present paper describes a developmental tool (Inclusion Analysis) that enables schools to identify how inclusive or otherwise they are in a relatively straightforward way with a minimal time commitment. The developmental background to the creation of the tool is outlined in terms of inclusion in Northern Ireland and the implementation of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (Northern Ireland) Order 2005. The benefits of using the inclusion analysis as a contributor to school improvement through the school improvement model of disability and special educational needs is described, along with its use and perceived benefits and feedback from schools that have used the tool. The paper concludes with suggestions for further work on the tool. (Contains 3 figures and 1 note.)
