The theme of ISEC 2021 is Closing the Research to Practice Gap. During the conference we will explore new perspectives on how to translate academic enquiry into practical, workable strategies with which educators can support the lives of children and young people living with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

During the ISEC 2021 conference we will explore the interrelationship between researchers, educational practitioners and parents examining the unique role each has in applying theory to practice and creating environments for a lasting and positive change.

We will address such commonly asked questions as:

  • Do researchers share the same priorities as practitioners?
  • Do academics and teachers share a common language?
  • What are the barriers to productive and successful co-operation? 
  • What are the long-term implications of COVID-19 for inclusion and special educational needs and disabilities?
