The most vulnerable in our society are often the ones who are excluded from educational and other opportunities, and their experiences need to be chronicled to bring about change. This book provides a global snapshot of the situation for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, bringing together experiences of inclusion across the lifespan from a variety of cultures and countries.

Scholars, practitioners and families will find this book interesting because it profiles practices that have been proven to be successful, as well as the many challenges to inclusive practice worldwide. By capturing many voices from many cultures, the contributors document not just notable similarities but also stark differences in how countries develop inclusive practices, shape educational policies and strengthen advocacy.

Despite their varied approaches to the issue, all engaged in the movement towards inclusion are united in their determination to ensure that children and young people are fully engaged in education. This book provides an excellent overview of current research in inclusive practices and also presents the realities faced by people and families around the world.
