Deconstructing normalisation: clearing the way for inclusion

Culham, Andrew and Nind, Melanie (2003) Deconstructing normalisation: clearing the way for inclusion Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, 28, (1), pp. 65-78. (doi:10.1080/1366825031000086902).

Record type: Article


This paper considers two major movements affecting the lives of people with an intellectual disability: normalisation and inclusion. The authors look back at the normalisation movement, reviewing its aims, processes and outcomes, and explore its relationship and compatibility with inclusion. In looking forward to the realisation of the inclusion agenda they ask whether normalisation is a suitable platform on which to build inclusion, or whether a process of deconstruction is needed. They discuss what lessons can be learnt from normalisation for the inclusion movement.
