Lessons Learned: Student Voice at a School for Pupils Experiencing Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties
Sellman, Edward
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v14 n1 p33-48 Mar 2009
Student voice and pupil empowerment projects are common in many mainstream schools. However, such initiatives are more challenging to implement in provision for students experiencing (social), emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD). As a consequence, they are less frequently attempted. This article reports one such attempt at an SEBD special school, where a student research group was formed to evaluate the school's behaviour policy. The students' views remind professionals of the need for consistency, positive relationships and communication underpinning behaviour management strategies. The article also reflects on a number of issues to consider when implementing such projects in special education contexts.
