Mervyn Hyde, Lorelei Carpenter, and Shelley Dole

  • Good balance of skills/practical content and theory. Encourages student to think about the theory and develop their own ideas and techniques.
  • Covers a broad range of topics, including gender issues, gifted children in the classroom, students with indigenous heritage and with English as a second language.
  • Includes chapters specifically on different types of diversity.
  • Excellent range of learning features to assist student learning.
  • Locates the principles of inclusion within international and national obligations, as well as national legislation and policy
  • Re-conceptualises the issues around children who present challenging behaviours for their schools and families, whether these behaviours are a concern of themselves, or associated with a primary disability such as Autism Spectrum Disorder
