Abstract

The article is a position paper on inclusive practice in education with
respect to students with severe or profound and multiple learning
difficulties (sld/pmld). It asks if children and young people with
sld/pmld have been excluded from the policy and the practice of
inclusive education. A review of the literature found that there is a
research gap around inclusive education for learners with sld/
pmld, and a review of historical and current practices indicated
that this group of learners has indeed been excluded from both
the policy and practice of inclusion in the United Kingdom with
the use of curricula based on a mainstream linear and academic
model reinforcing this exclusion. The study makes a theoretical
and practical contribution to the continuing debate about
inclusive education and will be of interest to teachers, parents,
policy-makers and the learners themselves.
