On Friday I received an email from Sense Publishers saying that my monograph proposal was positively received and that a book contract was on its way. What a great way to start the Easter break! It’s been three years since The PMLD Ambiguity was published and I’ve been keen to write a follow-up. The new book (based on research undertaken for my postdoc fellowship) will draw on phenomenological theory and case studies to explore the meaning of ‘inclusion’ as it relates to children with PMLD. Given the distinct lack of theory, research and knowledge in this area the book will hopefully become a catalyst for future debate.
The experience of being and belonging: a phenomenological account of inclusion for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities will be out in 2018.
