Overview

From Inclusion to Engagement: Helping Students Engage with Schooling through Policy and Practice / Edition 1

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
