Career Summary

Biography

Emeritus Professor Phil Foreman has an extensive publication record in intellectual disability, with research grants totaling over $390,000 since 2000. He was Director of the University of Newcastle Special Education Centre from 1986-1999. During this time the Centre developed a significant research profile, supported by a number of major research grants. He is a member of the Centre for Special Education and Disability Studies at the University of Newcastle. He was instrumental in the development of the link between the University of Newcastle and the Royal Institute for Deaf & Blind Children, which led to the establishment of the Renwick Centre, a research centre in the education of students with a sensory disability. This link led to Professor Foreman’s previous ARC Linkage grant. The sixth edition of his edited text-book, Inclusion in Action, was published in 2014. The book has been set as a text on over 20 university campuses in Australia and New Zealand. His single-authored book, Education of Students with an Intellectual Disability: Research and Practice, was published in 2009. Professor Foreman’s research profile has been combined with a significant administrative load for over 20 years. He was Director of the University’s Special Education Centre for 14 years, and for four of those years was also Dean of Students. He was then Dean of Education for six years until 2008, and was Chair of the NSW Institute of Teachers from 2007-13. In January 2013 he became a Member of the Order of Australia.

Research Expertise
Extensive publication record in the area of the education of students with a disability, having received research grants totaling well over $500,000 in the last 10 years. In 1999, led research team that developed an instrument to assess the support needs of students with a disability in regular classes. The instrument was used by the Department of Education and Training to allocate over $30m to regular schools, to support integrated students. Has also collaborated extensively with Dr Ian Dempsey on research related to the enrolment of students with disabilities in regular classes. Instrumental in the development of the link between the University of Newcastle and the Royal Institute for Deaf & Blind Children, which led to the establishment of the Renwick Research Centre. This led to previous SPIRT grant with highly successful outcomes. Has worked closely with Dr Michael Arthur-Kelly on research into the effective education of students with multiple and severe disabilities. In recent collaborative research between the NSW DET and The University of Newcastle, Foreman and Arthur-Kelly identified important differences between students with multiple and severe disabilities enrolled in segregated and inclusive settings which form basis of current research program.

Teaching Expertise
Long teaching career focussing primarily on special education, with major focus on early intervention, students with intellectual and multiple disability, and inclusive practices. Editor of leading university text-book on inclusive practice, about to be published in its 4th edition.

Administrative Expertise
Extensive administrative experience over more than 20 years including Head of Department, Head of Division, Dean, Head of School, Acting Pro Vice Chancellor (Teaching and Learning), also as leader of several large research projects including ARC-linkage grant, ARC-discovery grant and consultancies. Current discipline-related administrative activity includes Chairmanship of NSW Initial Teacher Education Committee, responsible for accreditation of all teacher education programs in NSW.

Collaborations
Professor Foreman works closely with A/Prof Michael Arthur-Kelly on research into the education of students with multiple and severe disabilities. They have been consultants to the Royal Institute for Deaf & Blind Children in an evaluation of the Institute’s educational programs for students with multiple disabilities. Foreman and Arthur-Kelly recently completed an ARC-Discovery Grant investigating the impact of training communication partners on the communication interactions of students with multiple and severe disabilities. They are among a small number of researchers in Australia working in the area of multiple and severe disabilities.

The familial incidence of Scotopic Sensitivity/Irlen Syndrome was investigated using parents of 751 children identified with symptoms. Children were identified by methods independent of their parents' symptoms or lack of symptoms. For these children, there was an 84% chance of either one or both parents showing similar symptoms, with similar numbers of mothers identified with symptoms as fathers. The data suggest that Scotopic Sensitivity/Irlen Syndrome may be a genetically based deficit in visual processing, but the simplest genetic models do not appear to fit.

This study reports the views of 123 parents of children with intellectual disability concerning the way they were told about their child's disability, the services recommended at that time and subsequently, the usefulness of services and the empathy of the providers. Results suggest a lag between the time at which some parents suspect that their child has a disability, and the time this suspicion is confirmed. Most parents indicated that they received factual information when first told of their child's disability. There were no significant differences between parental perceptions of the information given at disclosure of disability between the 1970s and the 1980s. The services most frequently recommended initially to parents were medical specialists, followed by early intervention and therapy services. Services which became significantly more likely to be recommended over the last two decades were physiotherapy and early intervention. The most useful services were ranked as the special school, pediatrician, early intervention program, regular preschool and other parents. The majority of children with moderate to severe disability were being educated in a special school or a special unit/class in a regular school. Approximately 25 per cent of parents commented on deficiencies in the co-ordination of services and in parental access to services. © 1991 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.

This paper reviews research into treatment approaches in Down's syndrome. A major focus for study has been the search for a pharmacological treatment, a potentially important search which to date has had limited success. Drug treatments which have been used extensively include thyroid therapy, 5-hydroxytryptophan, vitamin therapy and cell therapy, all of which are reviewed in this paper. Other forms of treatment reviewed are movement patterning, early intervention and facial surgery. © 1986 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.
