Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Attending to diversity is an indicator of teaching quality. The fundamentals of diversity education go back to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It means the commitment to respect the rights of the people belonging to minorities of any type and scope. It also implies a process of inclusion and continuous improvement that extends throughout the world and which focuses on the capabilities of people.

The international reports about inclusion education confer substantial short and long-term benefits for students with and without disabilities.

The benefits of inclusion for students with disabilities extend beyond academic results to social connection benefits. Inclusion education increases post-secondary education placement and improves employment and independence outcomes. Moreover, the benefits of inclusion for non-disabled students reduce fear of human difference and most importantly, inclusive education increases comfort and awareness, develops growth in social cognition, improves self-concept, improves personal, moral and ethical principles, and warm and caring friendships.

Teaching practice is central to ensuring that inclusive education provides benefits to all students. Teachers with positive attitudes towards inclusion are more likely to adapt the way they work for the benefit of all students and to influence their colleagues in positive ways to support inclusion.

I have set out to collect recent research related to inclusive education in a monograph entitled Current Research in Inclusive Education. It will have specific topics related to the latest advances in disability, accessibility, inclusive education, special educational needs, as well as issues related to educational programs linked to visual, auditory and motor difficulties.

I have accepted the invitation to coordinate this monographic number with pleasure, as an opportunity to visualize the work of so many researchers and research groups of national and international prestige who focus their studies in the field of inclusion.

The papers that will make up the monographic number will be those accepted after the blind peer review process used by the journal.
