How can classroom teachers effectively differentiate learning and teaching programs to provide for the needs of every student in their class? This best-selling text begins by asking Why include all students? in regular classrooms and then shows how this can be done. It outlines the philosophy of inclusive education and focuses on the use of individualised planning and effective teaching practices to maximise learning outcomes within positive and productive environments. Vignettes and narratives provide real-life examples that help put the theory in context. Whilst retaining a strong focus on understanding issues related to disability, this new edition now treats diversity from a broader perspective. Throughout, it emphasizes a practical, research-based approach to teaching that can be applied to support students with a range of differences and additional needs.
