Young people’s attitudes to disability

About the research

This project will examine children’s attitudes to disability, based on research conducted with CFEY, the education and youth ‘think and action-tank’. The findings will be based  on 11 focus groups with a mix of special educational needs or disabled pupils (SEND) and non-SEND pupils in mainstream and special schools.

The research will look at how schools respond to bullying behaviour, whether young disabled people are excluded from social networks and what the Department of Education should do to support teachers and schools.
