Garry worked in New Zealand as a mainstream class teacher and teacher of children with moderate learning difficulties and then as an educational psychologist. He went on to complete a PhD on effects on fathers of children with Down Syndrome at the Hester Adrian Research Centre at Manchester University. He subsequently lectured in special education at four universities and two teachers’ colleges, in New Zealand, England and Barbados. He has conducted research on post-school experiences of young people with moderate intellectual disabilities and those with behavioral difficulties and this has led him to question the trend towards full inclusion and to publish on this issue. He has established post-graduate training programs for teachers of children with special needs and disabilities in England, Barbados and New Zealand and has published over 150 journal articles and book chapters, and thirteen books, the most recent being on ‘Parental involvement in childhood education (2011)’ and ‘Inclusive special education (2014)’, both published by Springer in New York. Garry is a chartered educational and counseling psychologist and Fellow of the British Psychological Society. He is Professor Emeritus at the University of Plymouth and now lives in Barbados.
