Centre for Special Education and Disability Studies

The Centre for Special Education and Disability Studies in the Institute of Health, Education and Social Sciences is based at the Bognor Regis Campus. A key aspect of our work is to promote awareness of the values and ethos of inclusive practice in our Early Years settings, schools, colleges and in the community.

We are keen to be seen as a resource for all departments across the University, as well as professionals working in this field. We plan a number of events across the academic year which we hope will be an opportunity for us to meet and work together.

The purpose of the Centre is fourfold:

  • to make significant contributions to students' knowledge and understanding of working with children and adults who have special educational needs and disabilities;
  • to be a resource base for University staff and teaching professionals to access relevant and up to date information;
  • to promote opportunities for research both at the University and in workplace practice; and
  • to create local, national, and international links with people currently working, or interested in working, in a range of educational settings and services.
