School Memories of Young People with Disabilities: An Analysis of Barriers and Aids to Inclusion
Diez, Anabel Morina
Disability & Society, v25 n2 p163-175 Mar 2010
This article presents a selection of the results gleaned from research analyzing the way social exclusion processes are constructed among young adults between the ages of 18 and 25. The paper focuses on a subset of the population studied: young people with disabilities. Likewise, we limit our study to the dimension of school-related experiences. Our research methodology--based on individual personal narratives and first hand accounts--allows a dynamic, participative and integrated approach to the study of exclusion. Participants in the study were asked to reflect on their experiences and, thus, were given a voice. Our specific objective in this article was to identify and explain the barriers and aids to inclusion encountered in a variety of educational environments as expressed by interviewees who had experienced them personally.
