Summary: "This book pushes the boundaries in the way we approach people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities, and in how we work with them in education and research. While it is grounded in diverse theoretical frameworks and disciplines, the book coheres around a commitment to seeing people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities as equal citizens who belong in our classrooms, research projects and community lives. Each section covers policy contexts, key ideas and recent research. Featuring contributions from around the world, the book incorporates established and new voices, different disciplines and experiences. Additionally, it includes pieces from family members of people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities. Divided into three parts, the book explores three main topics: Belonging in education; Belonging in research; Belonging in communities. Belonging for People with Profound Intellectual and Multiple Disabilities is an invaluable resource for scholars, professionals and postgraduate research students with an interest in children or adults with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities"--
