Inclusive pedagogy from a child’s perspective (e-version)

$16.95

By Marilyn Fleer

Longstanding thinking in the area of inclusion argues against focusing on an actual physical disability, such as visual impairment. Rather, attention should be focused on what educators actually do and what conditions are created for children to give them the greatest access to learning and development.

By presenting a case example of one child with Albinism, Inclusive pedagogy from a child’s perspective invites educators to think differently about the concept of inclusion through examining the everyday life of one child.
