Confronting Obstacles to Inclusion uniquely and comprehensively addresses interpretations of inclusive education by drawing upon the experiences and expertise of leading writers and academics who have direct experience of teaching and researching this area around the world.

This landmark publication combines theoretical chapters with practical material demonstrating how the theories can be put in to action in the classroom. The contributors, who all have regular contact with pupils and teachers in inclusive settings, provide a broad spectrum of ideas, examine a number of key themes and interpret these in an international context, such as:

    • the causes of exclusion, the obstacles to inclusion and how these can be overcome
    • supporting families
    • how we can learn from students
    • professional development
    • enhancing teaching and learning
    • support in the classroom.

    This authoritative text will be of immense interest and use to practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and campaigners who are working towards a more equitable and inclusive society. Through a synthesis of theory and practice the book offers readers an opportunity to explore local, national and international perspectives and raises questions with regards to our current understanding of inclusion. Whilst the interrogation of the concept of inclusion is, in itself important, the book provides examples of professional approaches to the key questions which are currently challenging the education of a diverse range of learners.

    "I can foresee students valuing the blend of theory and practice since for some students there is a tension between the pursuit of an academic course and their desire for practical strategies and examples." - Sue Pearson, University of Sheffield "Few books take such a diverse perspective. There is a move to look beyond the traditional sources of information and experience in the field of special education." - David Mc Keon, Lecturer in Education, Church of Ireland College of Education"One of the strengths of this publication is its attempt to examine inclusion from a number of perspectives including that of students with special educational needs (SEN) where student ‘agency’ is equated with developing inclusive learning environments…Of particular interest is the emphasis placed on developing teachers’ attitudes towards inclusion above delivering information relating solely to special needs." - Deirdre Walshe, REACH Jounral of Special Needs Education in Ireland
