Abstract

Considering the Students’ Voice takes us into a varied international and today also national pedagogical movement. The issue relating to the promotion of Students’ Voice research paths with young people with disabilities is delicate. The authors, after a presentation of the movement, address the important issues of ethics and methodological critical issues in the research paths within the Special Pedagogy. It is important to highlight that also in Special Pedagogy research the focus must be not just to ‘listening the students voice’, but also to help students to become ‘change agents’, because they are the potential of transformation.
