Pushing for Change -
The Role of Disabled People's Organisations in Developing Young Disabled Leaders of the Future

This report looks at some of the ways different organisations are including young disabled people and encouraging their leadership and includes the voices and experiences of young disabled people on leadership matters.

The report highlights that young disabled people need to feel part of their communities, families and peer groups if they are to feel confident to seek out leadership roles. The research shows that young people want more choice and control in their lives so they can be leaders.

Pushing for change

DVD - 'Creating a Movement - The Struggle for Inclusive Education in the UK 1990 - 2006'

The movement for Inclusive Education is largely misunderstood and under-reported in the media. This DVD is relevant to everyone who wants to work towards a society in which exclusivity is not an organising principle, a society in which all people are brought up to live well together.
Section 1 - Prologue
These short personal statements to camera say why the issue in this video will make compelling viewing for anyone interested in progressive educational and world change.

Section 2 - Demo and Occupation
The demonstration, organised by ALLfIE and DAN (Direct Action Network), outside Downing Street in 1998 was a key moment in the public assertion of the case for Inclusive Education.

Section 3 - DfES Consultation 2003
This shows how the state officials attempt to manage a so-called 'consultation' on the matter with that group of people most effected. But the video is more valuable as a record of what Disabled people have to say about their own experiences of segregated schooling.

Section 4 - Interview with Micheline Mason
ALLfIE’s current Director Tara Flood interviews Micheline Mason, campaigner and author.
Price: £7 including postage and packaging

Snapshots of Possibility

Inclusive Education is based on a dream in which all children are given the safety to develop into whole human beings, able to think and learn, love and understand each other, be creative, feel empathy and compassion, work and play co-operatively and to act powerfully within their communities and as world citizens. This book shows that many mainstream nurseries, schools and colleges are changing and developing their practice to begin to make this dream a reality, especially for those children who are currently vulnerable to exclusion and segregation. They are inspiring stories, full of hope for the future.

Whose Voice is it Anyway? (1999)

Carried out by two disabled researchers, this project set out to ask young people both in special and mainstream schools what they felt and thought about their lives. Full of the words of the students, this report gives access to their thoughts on friendship, learning support assistants, teachers, parents and the life ahead of them. Equally, it chronicles the process used to finally create the situation in which the young people were empowered to speak about the things which mattered to them. A must for everyone who lives or works with young disabled people, or who is a young disabled person struggling to get the adult world to see sense.
Also available in a short ‘young person friendly’ version.
Price: £6 plus £1 p&p. Short version: £1.50 plus 50p p&p

Incurably Human

By piecing together a personal journey of discovery, the author explores the deeper meaning of inclusion. She looks at how communities, families and schools are being fragmented by the focus of global economics, rekindling the past eugenic polices which have created a culture of exclusion for many. She looks also at how dynamic resistance movement is growing, led by the excluded themselves and those who love them. Micheline Mason proposes that this is the beginning of a truly radical, non-violent world change movement of relevance to every living person.
