Inclusion in education : towards equality for students with disability /

by Cologon, Kathy | Macquarie University, Institute of Early Childhood, Children nd Families Research Centre.

Publisher: Clifton Hill, Vic. Children With Disability Australia 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Policy recommendations written with Children with Disability Australia September 2013 Includes bibliographic references pp. 49-57Summary: All children in Australia have the right to an inclusive education. However, there are many barriers to the realisation of this right in the lived experience of children and families. Current efforts towards upholding the rights of all children are impeded by a lack of understanding of inclusive education and misappropriation of the term. Additional barriers include negative and discriminatory attitudes and practices, lack of support to facilitate inclusive education, and inadequate education and professional development for teachers and other professionals. Critical to addressing all of these barriers is recognising and disestablishing ableism in Australia. ; This paper draws from recent research in addressing gaps in current understanding to provide a firm basis from which to inform research based policy development. Taking a rights-based approach, the paper focuses on developing a clear understanding of inclusive education and identifying strategies to enhance the education of all children in Australia.Availability: (1)

Models of Multi-agency Services for Transition to Adult Services for Disabled Young People and Those with Complex Health Needs : Impact and costs /

by Sloper, Patricia | University of York. Social Policy Research Unit | Beecham, Jennifer | Clarke, Susan.

Publisher: Heslington, York, UK University of York. Social Policy Research Unit 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: There is considerable evidence from descriptive research that for most disabled young people the process of transition from child to adult services is problematic. The problems in provision of appropriate services to support transition and in achieving positive outcomes for young people have been acknowledged in government policy. Many multi-agency transition services for disabled young people are at an early stage in their development, and there is considerable variability in how they are being implemented. This study provides information on aspects of such services that are likely to provide a more positive impact for young people and families, and highlights the importance of properly resourced services that provide direct support to young people, provide timely and clear information and support young people until they are settled in adult services. It also points to the importance of the wider range of services in providing opportunities for disabled young people as they develop into adulthood, and the lack of such opportunities at present which contributes to high levels of unmet need. More information on the cost and cost-effectiveness of transition services is needed to inform implementation. However, such studies are dependent on the willingness of services to release accurate information on their costs and activitiesAvailability: (1)

It examines whether early intervention is associated with improved outcomes, transitions to school, and social and workforce participation later in life. It also examines the use of diagnostic or functional thresholds to determine eligibility for early intervention, and the design features of such a tool, as well as cost implications of expanding current Australian Government funding, such as through the Helping Children with Autism program or Better Start initiative. The report concludes with policy recommendations for government.Availability: (1)
