Perspectives from the Autistic and autism communities have historically been marginalized within education research, and recent discussions have highlighted the need for meaningful engagement in order to strengthen both research practices and academic and practical understandings within the field (e.g., Poulsen et al., 2022). This Special Issue will prioritize co-produced research and focus on engaged research approaches in understanding inclusive practices within educational contexts.
The papers comprising this Special Issue will share a common focus on the importance of co-produced knowledge and the prioritizing of Autistic perspectives and contributions to both research and practice. Co-production practices within each of the papers need to be explicitly addressed in the contributions via a clear statement on the co-production participation and other aspects of the paper that prioritize Autistic lived experience. Papers may focus on discussions of co-production broadly or present work on inclusive education specifically that is developed through a co-produced approach to the research problem.
It is anticipated that the collection will make both individual and joint contributions to the research and professional narratives on inclusivity within educational contexts. Emerging issues for potential focus include but are not limited to the following themes:
- Reflections on co-produced research;
- Experiences of children within educational contexts;
- Alternative educational contexts (e.g., home-schooling);
- Developing skills in educators to create positive learning environments;
- Transitions beyond compulsory education;
- Experiences of Autistic students in Higher Education.
