This much needed book is an essential read not only for educators but for educational leaders everywhere. The plea to maintain high aspirations when teaching numeracy to children with developmental disabilities resonates throughout each chapter as the authors skilfully challenge misconceptions and offer practical solutions. This book is a vital tool in maximising the numeracy potential of all children and I wish somebody had given this to me when I became a maths teacher more than 15 years ago.
