The first three chapters of the text lay the foundation for the case studies which follow. Chapter 1 provides an overview of inclusive education, discussing the definition (we are using the UNESCO 2005 definition), general purposes, and goals. This chapter also includes direct quotes by those who are impacted in different ways by the process of inclusive education — a young adult with an intellectual disability, a university professor, a high school teacher, an educational assistant, and a superintendent. Chapter 2 provides a brief history of special and inclusive education focusing primarily on the Canadian and US contexts. In Chapter 3 we introduce two fundamental frameworks — universal design for learning (UDL) and response to intervention (RTI).

Each case study also includes a commentary by a Canadian leader in the field of educational inclusion. The commentator highlights for the reader the critical aspects of the case that support the philosophy of inclusive education. He/she will also analyse the case using the two theoretical frameworks which are introduced in Chapter 3 — UDL and RTI.

Chapter 13 provides a summary of the case studies, highlighting common themes, successful strategies, and/or issues in practice. The commentaries are also summarised and key concepts are identified. The final chapter (14) of the text presents the authors' thoughts about future directions for the practice and research of educational inclusion.
