I am delighted to be writing this third edition of Dyslexia and Inclusion. I have been involved in the field for over 30 years now and have always firmly believed that all children with dyslexia (and other similar difficulties) should be included in mainstream education. Inclusion as a tangible and realistic concept has gained enormous currency over that time, not only in education, but also in society as a whole. We are living in an age where equality of opportunity – though not always a reality – does have a high priority in most societies.
