Review:

“I have been using the book since 2002 till date, and I have no intension now, or in the near future change to another textbook for my inclusive education courses. I am more encouraged to retain this book based on my students’ yearly evaluation of the textbooks for the three courses on inclusive education, which I have been teaching since 2002 till date. They commend the relevance of the content to their pedagogical practices, and for future professional development, as well as appreciate the simple and easy to read content of the book. In sum, I will retain using the textbook as long as I each inclusive education courses.”

--Lantana M. Usman, University of Northern British Columbia

 

“This text has a Canadian perspective which is very important in education and inclusive education in particular. The use of vignettes throughout gives it the case study feel. It is much better geared for inclusive education than most texts that provide only a categorical approach to instructing students with exceptionalities.”

--Jacqueline Specht, University of Western Ontario
