Target audiences

This series is directed to regular and special educators; school leaders; policy makers; school-based physical and occupational therapists, mental health clinicians, counsellors and psychologists; university professors and graduate students. The series is ideal for decision-makers, academics, and practitioners who have a professional interest in the inclusion of children and youth with disabilities, learning difficulties, or other potentially marginalizing difficulties in regular schools and classrooms. 

Each series volume focuses on a key aspect of inclusive education and provides critical chapters by contributing authors who discuss theoretical positions, empirical findings, and impact on school and classroom practice. Evidence-based research practices provide a plethora of ideas for decision-makers and practitioners with current ways of thinking about and implementing inclusive education.
Editorial Objectives
The main aim of this series is to present contemporary research covering policy, practice, and theory in relation to the inclusion of children and young people in regular schools and classrooms. The research represents interventions, strategies, understandings and modeling of related issues thought to be of importance to professionals working in a variety of inclusive settings. Though largely focused upon schooling and educational settings  the series also covers related professional areas such as inclusion in children’s homes, residential schools, youth work, mental health, neuroscience, employment, environment and well-being as these relate to inclusive education. The series draws upon aspects of inclusive education across a range of local, national, and international settings.
Series Scope and Coverage
Volumes in the series contribute to the academic and professional discourse on inclusive education. They cover issues which promote good practice in terms of enabling children and young people to make positive progress towards being ‘rounded’ individuals capable of enjoying and achieving quality education outcomes within inclusive environments. Issues will focus on key aspects associated with inclusive education and discuss the inclusion of children and youth who may experience potential barriers to accessing equitable education in regular settings.  Controversial issues will be presented in a balance and reasoned manner which explore the nature of variables affecting such outcomes.
The centrality of the notion of inclusive practice across the world and its relation to compliance with various international Declarations and Charters raises this series importance across education and schooling in both the developed and developing worlds. Children and youth with disabilities, learning difficulties, or other potentially marginalizing difficulties are amongst the most marginalised groups in all societies. The topics covered by the series provide contemporary analyses of a wide range of controversial global issues impacting the well-being of this group and their potential not just to be included  but also to engage with their peers and the school community. The potential impact of the series on contemporary research and public policy discussions in global contexts, among diverse populations, cannot be overstated.
