Inclusive Special Education
Much has been written about special education and about inclusive education, but there have been few attempts to pull these two concepts and approaches together. This book does just that: sets special education within the context of inclusive education. It posits that to include, effectively, all children with special educational needs in schools requires an integration of both concepts, approaches, and techniques. It has never been more timely to publish a book that helps professionals who work with schools, such as psychologists, special education professionals, and counselors, to identify effective practices for children with special needs and provide guidelines for implementing these in inclusive schools. Garry Hornby, Ph.D., worked as a teacher and educational psychologist in Auckland, New Zealand, from 1971 to 1986. He then returned to the U.K. to work at the Universities of Manchester and Hull, with two years at the University of the West Indies, in Barbados, before returning to New Zealand in 2002. His teaching and research is in the areas of educational psychology, counseling, teacher education, parental involvement, and special and inclusive education.
