Pushing for Change -
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

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.
Where Are They Now?
This little book brings us the voices of fifteen of
the first disabled children to go to mainstream schools. Most of them
are now young adults. They tell us of their past struggles, their current
lives and their plans for the future. They have been part of history
in the making and look set to continue to build a more inclusive society
for us all.
The Inclusion Assistant (Report and Video)
A consultation with young disabled people and their
parents to think about the role of non-teaching assistants in mainstream
education, particularly with regard to young people with high-level
support needs. This report captures the best thinking of a group of
young people and their allies who have pioneered in inclusion and who
really know what needs to happen.
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.
Forced Apart - the case for ending compulsory segregation (1998)
A detailed case arguing for the removal of the conditions
on the legal duty of LEAs to provide a mainstream school place for a
child with a Statement of Special Educational Need.
A series of three thought provoking articles written
by Micheline Mason.
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
