The best method of including disabled people in mainstream education is the subject of much debate, but the voice of disabled people themselves is seldom heard.
Mal Leicester argues that people have been disabled by society, and that there is a need for educational change. This book encourages equal opportunities for disabled people by promoting the practice of enabling education, a 'diability-aware' education that caters for everyone's educational needs. Interviews with disabled people are also included, giving their own recommendations for educators and policy makers.
Disability Voice addresses the rights of those with disabilities and the needs of their carers, and will be of interest to educational policy makers, teachers, their trainers, and people with disabilities and their families.
