Abstract

This research study was carried out by the Thomas Coram Research Unit, Institute of Education, University of London, between January and July 2008.The study was funded by The Back-Up Trust, an organisation working with spinally injured adults and children, as part of their Schools Project. The main purpose of the study was to explore the experiences of children and young people with a SCI in mainstream school. This was to inform The Back-Up Trust’s Schools Project, which has the aim of improving the quality of school provision for children with a spinal cord injury. The study asked young people, parents and carers about their positive and negative experiences. It also aimed to investigate schools’ experiences of working with young people with a SCI and the challenges and factors that help them work effectively with children with a SCI.
