The system needs to change: young disabled people’s experience of education.


Evan Odell (Disability Rights UK) and Kate Bowen-Viner (LKMco) will be presenting findings from their collaborative research with young disabled people. This session will explore young people’s perceptions of disability and their experience of education. Evan and Kate will also highlight best practice in schools, examine current policy frameworks and make the case for the urgent need to change the system.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
