Example text

Craig, although ‘officially’ recognised as dyslexic, with an educational psychologists report as ‘evidence’, identifies himself as dyspraxic and dyscalculaic. ’ I was, at first, concerned that I would be unable to draw on his experiences since he lacked ‘professional authentication’ of being dyspraxic. ’ I wondered whether either narrative was valid and whether I should have included only those with ‘officially’ recognised dyspraxia, 25 CHAPTER 2 yet this would seem to run contrary to the political motivation of the inclusive nature of this work, the complexity and flexibility of labelling (Norwich, 2008) and the positioning of the research within the power/knowledge discourse (Foucault, 1980).

He goes on to describe school structures and organisations as ‘neither natural or normal’ places for effective learning to take place where systemic failure is rationalised as a failure of the individual (p. 484), suggesting also that ‘learning disabilities’ (more specifically a US term), created by inappropriate school structures, would not exist without the school context. ART EDUCATION AND EXCLUSIVE PRACTICE Art education will be explored more fully in Chapter 5, but it is useful to make the connections between some specific characteristics of art as a site for learning and the principles of inclusion that are being discussed here.

He says: Whereas one would not want to deny that some people have great ability in an area of study or practice, the concept ‘talent’ has all too often been conceived of as dichotomously distributed ability, something that one either has or does not have. Yet there is hardly a human ability I can name that is so distributed. 42 INCLUSION AND EDUCATION The overwhelming majority of man’s [sic] abilities are developed in different degrees. (p. 115) The concept of ability or talent in art defined here is particularly problematic in relation to this aspect of education which appears to mark art education out for special consideration.
