Our academics produce research, articles and textbooks that make a significant contribution to learning and teaching in education, childhood and inclusion. This work is also shared with local, national and international audiences through conferences and seminars.

We have a reputation for high-quality research and scholarship that seeks to make a positive difference to the lives of people within our communities.

The department has particular research strengths in the areas of early years, childhood, autism and the study of disability. We're also home to the Disability Research Forum, a significant national and international network for disability researchers.
