As a teacher researcher examining issues within inclusive teaching practice I have utilized a participatory action research (PAR) approach within both my Masters and PhD research projects. The PAR approach promotes consultation and collaboration with, and between, participants as they explore common issues together. My research and teaching practice is situated within a socio-political model of disability. This model proposes that disability is not the result of a person’s impairment, but rather of the disabling social-cultural barriers in society (Minister for Disability Issues, 2001; Purdue, 2004). Disability is defined, not as an individual deficit requiring intervention, but as a societal creation (Macartney, 2007).
