From Inclusion to Engagement: Helping Students Engage with Schooling through Policy and Practice (0470019468) cover image
From Inclusion to Engagement challenges the ideologically driven academic discourse that has come to dominate inclusive education by presenting research-based knowledge about what actually works.
  • Presents an innovative approach rooted in a biopsychosocial theoretical perspective – an approach that is still relatively misunderstood within the educational sphere
  • Offers insights based on an extensive review of contemporary international research in the field
  • Avoids the biases of ideology in favour of science-based social and educational outcomes
  • The first comprehensive account of evidence-based interventions for students with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties
