Special Educational Needs and Disability Studies

Special Educational Needs and Disability Studies is an innovative, trans-disciplinary degree programme developed to reflect the shifting emphasis within the field of Special Educational Needs and Disability. Essentially, it is the study of challenging concepts relating to equal opportunity, inclusion and a holistic understanding of childhood and youth. This degree is underpinned by childrens rights and drives towards developing integrated and responsive services for children, young people and families.

We have created an online taster session for Special Educational Needs and Disability Studies
