Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

This publication reports the context, contributors, topics and outcomes of a five event (4x2days & end point conference) seminar series which acknowledged the need for an autism research strategy for Scotland and to relate this to international knowledge and current research in Scotland. The report calls for an Independent Autism Research Consultative Body, the Scottish Autism Strategy Governance Group to meet research relevant Recommendations 7 & 8 of the Autism Strategy and to maintain strong links with the proposed independent body so that research can inform the direction of the Strategy in its second 5 years of implementation, and for researchers in Scotland to make their work widely known for maximum impact in meeting the many issues facing autistic people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them.
