With funding awarded by St Christopher’s Trust and also the University of Cumbria, the principal investigator was able to collect data in two mainstream and two special educational needs schools in Bangalore, India. This case study investigates inclusive practice, cultural contexts and perceptions of disability in one of the Christian foundation special needs school in Bangalore. The aims of the research are to investigate: perceptions of disability in a Christian foundation special needs school in Bangalore and how these perceptions are informed by cultural contexts and belief systems; and to provide a forum for sharing good practice and identifying teacher development needs.
