Parents' choice of education for their young children: lessons for inclusive education

Nind, Melanie and Flewitt, Rosie (2006) Parents' choice of education for their young children: lessons for inclusive education At European Conference of Educational Research. 13 - 16 Sep 2006.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper reports on aspects of a small-scale, UK-based study that investigated local discourses and practices operating for young children within a global context of commitment to inclusion. The study focused on parents of young children identified as having special educational needs, who opted for a combination of both inclusive and special early years settings to ‘get the best of both worlds’ for their children (Nind, Flewitt & Johnston, 2005). The paper discusses the implications of the emerging themes for the development of inclusive education.
