This is a welcome text in the fields of both research and learning difficulties. It provides a clear foundation from which researchers can build their understanding of inclusive research with recommendations about additional accessibility considerations that must be considered when conducting research. The historical context for how research in learning difficulties has progressed is also valuable for those new to the fields.
I enjoyed the book, I found it quite a intense layout however. Very good content with some good theories.
A useful introduction to the background issues when conducting research with children with additional needs. One especially useful chapter considers differing perspectives from a range of disciplines and the way that these different perspectives influence research.
An in-depth overview of some of the key issues that an inclusive researcher is likely to face.
A good book to refer to as an introduction for practitioners understanding of research in learning difficulties.
There was nothing else that I was aware of specific to researching pupils with SEN and yet this was something that many students were interested in - this book fills a gap in student need.
