Researching Special and Inclusive Education



January 2023 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Researching in special and inclusive education can be challenging due to the frequent difficulties in eliciting the views of individuals identified with SEND. This book will give students the confidence to be creative, flexible, and innovative when it comes to planning research, particularly with children and young people within special and inclusive education.

Students will be guided through each step of the research process, from the development of a research question to ethical considerations, methodologies and data analysis, before being led through the many practical issues that need to be considered when planning, executing and writing up research in this field, including good research practices, solutions to possible dilemmas and adapting methods appropriately.
