The Implications of a Non-Inclusive Education for Autistic Children and Young People
Mitchell, Fiona
Kairaranga, v24 n1 p33-42 2023
The foundation of inclusive education is that every learner has the potential to contribute positively to society. A sense of belonging to society is vital to this contribution, and to the growth and development of autistic children and young people. New Zealand has made some positive progress towards inclusive education, with some education institutes understanding that all children have the right to be educated and to receive the best possible education they can, regardless of ethnicity, culture or disability. However, research indicates that there are still barriers to inclusive education, and these barriers have drastic lifelong implications for autistic children and young people. This paper outlines inclusive education, identifies barriers from the perspectives of research through literature, educators and families through a small-scale study, and discusses lifelong implications of a non-inclusive education on autistic children and young people.
