With apologies for cross posting.
I am looking for references to quantitative surveys of disability issues and
images in syllabus and curricular study materials for use with early years
children, (either fiction, materials to support reading acquisition or to
support factual learning). I am particularly focused on pre-school, but am
also looking for analyses of material for children up to eight years old. I
am interested mainly in materials used in UK setting, but would be
interested in similar studies elsewhere.
I know there was a study in the early 1990's, but do not know the author and
cannot find a reference to it. I would like to know if there are more recent
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
