Theorising Special Education

Synopsis

Although the field of special needs education continues to develop in exciting and controversial ways, many feel it lacks coherent theoretical analysis of its own. Students and practitioners often look to psychology and sociology for theoretical support for their own work. This book establishes the theoretical foundation for the work of the special needs community that was previously lacking, bringing together international contributors from key names in the field. The book will be an essential text for students and teachers, as well as all those involved in special needs across the social sciences.
