    Abstract

    This chapter takes a poststructuralist perspective on labelling students in schools. Anyone who spends times in schools may have heard teachers refer to their "special needs" kids. Indeed researchers in education themselves refer to "special needs" kids or perhaps more specifically, "ASD" or "EDB" kids. If teachers and academics are using labels to describe children in this way, then surely there couldn't be anything wrong with it? Could there?
