              Maori learners with special needs
                

              Maori learners with special needs (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              How can Mori learners with special needs have their needs met in a culturally appropriate, effective way? What challenges exist and how can they be met? A multimethod approach was used to answer these questions, including the development and trial of a cultural audit. Findings re...vealed that Mori learners with special needs were not being adequately provided for. Special education provisions need to be based on Mori perspectives of special needs and incorporate Mori concepts, knowledge, skills, attitudes, language, customs, values and beliefs; focus on areas of importance, concern and benefit to Mori; involve and empower parents, family, the Mori community and the learners themselves; be of a high quality; accessible; result in equitable outcomes for Mori learners; and be delivered by people with the required personal, professional and cultural expertise. The cultural audit was seen as an effective means of improving programs and services for Maori learners with special needs. However, to achieve long-term, widespread improvement, genuine power sharing and societal-level changes in the ideologies, systems and circumstances that disadvantage Mori are needed.

              Working with Maori Children with Special Education Needs emphasises the importance of learning from the past and listening to Maori children, their parents and wider whanau. It explores the key components of culturally responsive, evidence-based, special education practice; it de...scribes holistic and inclusive responses to educating all tamariki, especially those with identified special education needs; and it discusses a paradigm for Maori disability identity--whanau haua. This book also features specific categorial studies, outlining Maori concepts and advising professionals. The studies explore the needs of deaf children and their whanau; outline general, educational and cultural barriers for Maori who are vision impaired or blind; and discuss physical disability, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, and giftedness from a Maori perspective. This book then considers ways that teachers and whanau can capitalise on their respective strengths and knowledge in order to take joint responsibility for students' learning and behaviour. Each chapter includes study questions.
