"This best practice guide is designed to cover two important aspects relating to higher education and disability. These are accessibility of higher education and possibilities to lead an independent life by students with disabilities. Within each aspect, we have chosen topics that we believe to be important and in which we can share examples of good practice and propose further improvements. Each topic contains examples of good practice from each partner country, namely Germany, Poland and Slovenia. Examples of good practice are followed by proposals for further development and improvement"

This report documents the results of a project to explore disabled children’s (11 – 16 years old) experiences, and their perceptions of impairment; of services; and of their social relationships with family, peers and professionals. The study involved over 300 children in a range of settings and used qualitative methods.
The research highlighted an atmosphere of resentment towards the comparatively high levels of adult surveillance disabled children faced, as opposed to their non-disabled peers, along with the varying degrees to which the word ‘disabled’ and the concept of disability had been appropriated and understood by disabled children themselves. Finally, it alluded to the presence of multiple barriers to inclusion (as generally understood by the social model) that disabled children were still facing on a regular basis
"This study is about secondary schools that have changed the ways in which supports and services are provided to all students, including those with disabilities. The schools and countries were selected to represent a diverse view of inclusive practices in secondary schools in countries from different regions of the world. The study provides examples of how schools have begun to implement change towards providing inclusive environments. Each case study provides issues to consider in the relationship between inclusive practices and the structuring of secondary school education"
