Victoria Honeybourne's The Neurodiverse Classroom is a groundbreaking book. This book will have an impact on the reframing of classroom practice and creating successful and fully inclusive schools - moving from the rhetoric to the reality. Clearly organized and well-written, this is a superb book for all educators. The term 'neurodiversity' is clearly explained and Honeybourne, using her personal and vast professional experience, provides practical arguments as to why a paradigm shift in inclusion is needed. As she indicates, 'neurodiversity' should be accepted and celebrated. This a positive book with a persuasive message. It will, and certainly should, become a popular book for those entering the profession and for experienced practitioners. There are many practical strategies contained within comprehensive coverage of the challenges experienced by children with learning differences and how these can be overcome. An exciting, thought-provoking and practical book.-- Dr Gavin Reid, Practitioner Psychologist and author of Dyslexia in the Early Years
