One of our regular bloggers, Aimee Collins, on her hopes and fears for the year…
ALLFIE is an alliance of parents, disabled students, teachers and professionals which campaigns for disabled pupils and students to access inclusive education in mainstream schools, training and apprenticeships, with all necessary supports’. You can find out more about ALLFIE’s news and activities at www.allfie.org.uk.
ALLFIE have asked us to share their request:
We are very keen to hear parents’ and education professionals’ views. So far, we have had really interesting responses coming through. We hope to receive as many viewpoints as possible, so that we can build a bigger picture of people’s diverse experiences of school Accessibility Plans and access issues generally.
Finding out about people’s real-life experiences will help us create compelling research findings. We hope our research will increase Accessibility Plans’ potential to drive inclusive education practice – and, ultimately, support more opportunities for independent living and inclusion in mainstream society.
