The debate about special needs provision has increased dramatically over the last 15 years, however, despite the widespread concern over both learning and behavioural difficulties, there have been few attempts to analyse in detail the process of assessment by which children are being identified as having special educational needs. Drawing upon research carried out by the authors, this book fills that gap by examining the process in detail. It considers the assessment process itself and how it affects and is affected by other areas of school policy - in some cases causing tension and conflict such as parental participation, the use and allocation of resources and multi-professional decision-making. A feature of the book is its analysis of the impact of the National Curriculum and the local management of schools (LMS) provision for special needs.

All contributors share a willingness to engage seriously with challenges thrown down by disabled academics and activists; that they do from different standpoints is another strength of this collection' - "Disability & Society " This volume addresses the issue of voice' in special education research; the voices of the researchers as well as those of the researched', and the ways in which research mediates identities. It follows on from the well-known and controversial Making Difficulties, also edited by Peter Clough and Len Barton. The contributors address, among other things: the question of overt and subtle power relations within the research context; the issues of voice' in emancipatory research; and the view that a more democratic approach to research is made difficult because of the individualized, competitive work culture of higher education and research production.

Planning: what can be done, who will do it, when and how? 4. Action: converting the plan to action, monitoring and review In each chapter the discussion of planning strategies is supported by a case study example of its use in practice, together with materials for teachers to use and adapt in their own classroom contexts. Sections include: * literacy skills * maths skills * science * thinking and learning skills * dyslexia * handwriting * speech and language difficulties Published in a loose-leaf format, this pack provides invaluable source material for all classroom teachers, and will also be of help to special needs co-ordinators planning INSET work and whole-school approaches under the Code of Practice.

Special education and gifted and talented programs were designed for children whose educational needs are not well met in regular classrooms. From their inceptions, these programs have had disproportionate representation of racial and ethnic minority students. What causes this disproportion? Is it a problem? Minority Students in Special and Gifted Education considers possible contributors to that disparity, including early biological and environmental influences and inequities in opportunities for preschool and K-12 education, as well as the possibilities of bias in the referral and assessment system that leads to placement in special programs. It examines the data on early childhood experience, on differences in educational opportunity, and on referral and placement. The book also considers whether disproportionate representation should be considered a problem. Do special education programs provide valuable educational services, or do they set students off on a path of lower educational expectations? Would students not now placed in gifted and talented programs benefit from raised expectations, more rigorous classes, and the gifted label, or would they suffer failure in classes for which they are unprepared? By examining this important problem in U.S. education and making recommendations for early intervention and general education, as well as for changes in referral and assessment processes, Minority Students in Special and Gifted Education will be an indispensable resource to educators throughout the nation, as well as to policy makers at all levels, from schools and school districts to the state and federal governments.
