Special Rights

Over eighteen months, artists Emma McGarry and Adam J B Walker worked with children with special education needs and disabilities (SEND), their parents and staff from the Portman Early Childhood Centre in North Westminster. Download the pdf here.

The project centred on the following questions: Why and how are children with SEND being failed by the education system? How might adopting a special rights approach improve experiences for children with SEND? How can parents and carers come together with early years workers to create a network of support and solidarity?

The resulting publication Special Rights is available as a free download. Printed copies are also available free of charge. Please email [email protected] for your copy.

Changing Play is an ongoing partnership with the Portman Early Childhood Centre in Westminster which brings together artists, children, families and educators to critically reconsider early years education and care.
