Education for Inclusion and Diversity is the only Australian inclusive education text that directly applies key theories to classroom practices through problem-based learning.

It provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the context, the fundamentals, and practices of teaching in contemporary Australian schools in which inclusion (intellectual disability, autism, vision impairment, above-average intelligence) is an overarching and guiding principle.

It is both a source book and practical guide that systematically introduces the concept of inclusion, practical teaching methods, and strategies to ensure that the learning needs of all students at every level of schooling are accommodated.
