Children with mild to moderate learning difficulties (MLD) make up the largest sub-group of children requiring special educational needs, and yet they are often neglected in terms of research and in their influence on future Government policy directions. The authors of this book, developed out of a Nuffield Foundation research project, have listened to and considered the perspectives of children with moderate learning difficulties in relation to: * Their educational provision * Their feelings about the labels that are used for them * Issues around their identity and self-perception * The way they feel about social interaction and bullying. The authors weave their findings into a wider review of current research in the MLD field and use a range of perspectives in the book, from the professional, to psychological and sociological. They raise issues about the extent of future inclusion for the remaining groups of pupils with MLD in special schools, and discuss various options for future policyand practice. Students, researchers and academics who are active in the field of inclusive education will find this an insightful and comprehensive text.
