The topic of inclusion in education has transformed over the years from when it was first introduced and as a result of legislation, new trends, and current research investigations. In addition, this topic can be somewhat controversial depending on the disability the child might have or those professionals involved in the process of instructing individuals with disabilities. Currently, there is no comprehensive resource that effectively covers these advances with the breath of topics as this volume.

This volume, written by leaders in the field with particular expertise in this area, addresses the most current perspectives and issues related to general and special education inclusion. It is an excellent resource for special educators, administrators, mental health clinicians, school counsellors, and psychologists.
