September 2015 - The Social Exclusion of Schoolmates with Learning and Intellectual Disabilities: A Concept Mapping Approach

Nowicki & Brown

This case presents all the methodological challenges involved in using concept mapping to investigate the causes of social exclusion in children with learning and intellectual disabilities. The writers offer a detailed analysis of the six steps of concept mapping and reveal the benefits and difficulties of conducting applied research in schools. Instead of asking parents or educators, they interview the children themselves, thus providing us with a clear and candid analysis of the issue of social exclusion.
