Nucifora, Alice; Walker, Sue – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2021

It is proposed that the socio-emotional problems experienced by those children with ASD and/or ADHD lead to poor…

A function-based communication intervention might be an effective approach to decrease inappropriate behaviours of children with ED.…

Kamenopoulou, Leda; Ali, Aaliya; Ockelford, Adam – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2021
In England, the term 'multi-sensory impairment' (MSI) has come to overlap with other labels, which is problematic for both research and practice. We undertook a scoping review of empirical studies conducted in England over the past 20 years on MSI and overlapping labels. We designed and used a review protocol and combined multiple searching…

Schools continue to experience difficulty meeting the needs of young children who are formally identified as having an emotional and/or behavioural disorder (EBD). Although schools are mandated to use evidence-based practices to improve student outcomes, such practices must first be identified before they can be employed. Systematic reviews of…

Primary-secondary school transition encompasses multiple social, academic and environmental changes which can negatively impact children's emotional well-being.

O'Connor, Una; Hasson, Felicity; McKeever, Christine; Finlay, Jayne – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2021
The assistant workforce is a constituent presence in all schools. Progressive reconfiguration of the role has resulted in a hybrid position, with assistants customarily navigating power relationships in the hierarchy of the school. This paper employs Bourdieu's theory of social fields, in particular, his system of relations, as a means to consider…

Carvalho, Eloise; Skipper, Yvonne – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2020
Interventions to increase the endorsement of the growth mindset (the belief that intelligence can be improved with effort) have been successfully implemented in schools.

The concept of early screening and response to intervention has been recognised as key to success in literacy. In this article, an implementation model, which combined a published screening test with a free open access short-term intervention, was piloted and evaluated over several years. Significant improvements in risk levels for literacy…
