First published in 1995. This book concerns aspects of decision-making by, or on behalf of, children who have special educational needs. This is an area of concern, given that little attention had previously been given to the views of children on matters relating to their education. The book examines various themes relating to ‘advocacy’, in relation to classroom practice, school organisation and professional development in all phases of education. Additionally, the role of parents and of support agencies is considered. Each theme is developed by an author with expertise in that field, and the emphasis of the book is upon the practical considerations of implementing advocacy programmes in schools.
