Special and inclusive education
Research on special and inclusive education covers a wide range of topics exploring conceptual, theoretical, methodological and policy and practice issues. Research on special education includes evidence-based and effective teaching practices for literacy and numeracy, behaviour management and educational interventions for specific disabilities such as autism, blindness, physical disabilities, learning difficulties and intellectual disabilities. Research on inclusive education focuses on attitudinal research, teacher training and professional development, research with families, and development of inclusive practices and collaboration within and across schools and systems.
