Description

This inspirational book brings together the personal experiences and unique insights of dedicated teachers, staff and parents to reveal the elements that make St Lucy’s an extraordinary example of excellence in education for children with disabilities.

Adopting a social rather than medical model, St Lucy’s constructs disability as a range of different abilities which students can deal with and achieve within. The school stresses the importance of listening and observing, and of creating close and nurturing relationships which will ultimately help students to develop the skills and confidence to lead meaningful lives within the community.

The creativity, humour, resilience, perseverance and naturalness of the children themselves is highlighted throughout in a series of reflections that will be an inspiration to us all.
