Liverpool Hope University
Special Educational Needs
The programme has been designed to meet and extend the interests and requirements of professionals in all kinds of educational contexts, from early years to post-compulsory settings. The provision of the programme recognises a growing interest in this aspect of educational provision and the Faculty's commitment to work for educational equality and social justice. The degree is distinctive in drawing on disability studies perspectives in order to interrogate the nature and origins of the special educational needs (SEN) discourse. This will enable you to take a critical stance on historical and current practise enabling you to challenge implicit and damaging assumptions about the nature of special educational needs and the implications for learners. The degree is informed by the application of a critical disability studies theoretical framework enabling Liverpool Hope University to offer a critical approach to the ways in which we conceptualise and practise 'special' education. As part of your study you will develop your own creative and critical response to the design of an appropriate research project; a significant consideration will be the necessity of engaging with the ethics of disability research.
