Sheila Riddell Riddell, S. (2006) "Special Educational Needs: Providing Additional Support" Policy and Practice in Education, Volume 5.
The key questions we aim to address this seminar:

1) Is inclusive education affected by political influences, if so how and why ?

2) Are children without Special Educational Needs (SEN) affected in a positive or negative way within the system of inclusive education ?

3) Would the needs of SEN children be better addressed in specialised schools?
After watching the video about Morgan and her experience with inclusion, do you think this would be the experience of many other children with special educational needs? Why or why not?

We encourage you to share any experiences you have had, good and bad that relate to inclusion Activity

A short documentary on Morgan Warren, a girl with 11Q Syndrome, and her inclusion experience at a primary school •Development of inclusive educational polices

•Issues affecting progress

•The growing spectrum of ASD

•Mainstream and specialist units

•Tensions surrounding inclusion Integration Locational: Children with SEN educated
in school although on another site.

Social: Similar to locational however a
greater importance to the children having
more contact with others during for example
lunch time, play time etc.

Functional: Where the child spends his/
her whole tome in class and follows
the same curriculum, with
added support though. Integration “the parent of the pupil refuses to comply or to allow the pupil to comply with the
rules, regulations or disciplinary requirements of the school “
“that they consider that in all the circumstances to allow the pupil to continue his/her attendance at the school would be likely to be seriously detrimental to order and discipline in the school or to the educational well-being of pupils there” Alternatives to
Exclusion (Munn et al, 2011) A greater proportion of
children with additional
support needs are now being
(not attending special schools). 1 in 3 are not always in
mainstream classes BUT The figures show
that there are 99 952
children who receive
free school meals 10 397 of these children are known to have a
special need of some form only 971 children are both recognised as
having a special need and being looked
after by the state Social Class and Social class Gender Boys are more likely than girls to be
identified as having additional support needs, excluded from school, and placed in special
schools or units. In 2005, 70% of pupils with additional
support needs, 68% of pupils
attending special schools and 79%
of those excluded
from schools were male. There is a growing opinion
in both Scotland and England that inclusion has “gone too far” and that there is more of a need to have additional support for the children with emotional and behavioral difficulties
“There is a growing recognition that the policy
of inclusion is not working for many
pupils who exhibit violent
behaviour. Do you Agree? What does 'inclusion' mean to you? Discussion Inclusion Mairi David Emma Dean Simon Katie Michelle Inclusion? and Exclusion Gender a detailed definition of inclusion
