Summary

This edited volume candidly uncovers the inside experiences of different educational inclusion programs for special needs students by focusing on the perspectives of students, teachers, parents, university faculty, and administrators. These voices are often silenced by professional discourses concerned with identification, assessment, placement, or practice. Pathway to Inclusion is intended for practicing and prospective teachers, administrators, related professionals, and family members of children with special needs.
