Young disabled people experience institutional discrimination and stigmatisation in mainstream schools in England, research finds
New research by the University of Warwick has found that disabled young people in England experience institutional and structural discrimination in mainstream schools, with two thirds fewer achieving level 2 qualifications compared to non-disabled peers. Academics argue that these experiences are a key barrier to educational and occupational attainment.
A group of Coventry and Warwickshire dads have created a set of online videos to help fathers of disabled children be the best dads that they can be. They worked with Dr Emma Langley, a family researcher in Education Studies, to capture their experiences and create a resource aimed at supporting the wellbeing of other fathers raising a disabled child. The online resources, designed by dads for dads, will be launched on Wednesday 31 March.
