Summary "Children with mild general learning disabilities (MGLD) comprise the largest subgroup with special educational needs in Irish schools. With the growth of inclusive education, increasingly these pupils are being educated in mainstream national schools. Inclusion or illusion? considers the educational provision for these children in mainstream, special class and special school settings. Providing details of the first ever nationwide study into the education of MGLD primary school pupils, this book documents contemporary practice an examines the key issues affecting schools, pupils, teachers and support services. The authors integrate their findings into a wider review of previous and current research. This provides the reader with a theoretical and practical perspective drawn primarily from the insights of over 900 teachers during the research period 1989-2007" -- back cover.
