In the realm of special education, the global narrative has often been dominated by Western perspectives and methodologies. This edited volume, "Asian[1]African: Towards a Novel Understanding of Special Education," emerges as a pioneering effort to shift the focus towards the rich, diverse, and often underrepresented contexts of Asia and Africa. It is a compendium that brings together a multitude of voices, research, and practices from these regions, offering a unique and essential perspective on special education.

The genesis of this book lies in the recognition of the vast and varied experiences of individuals with special needs across different cultural, social, and economic landscapes. Asia and Africa, with their rich tapestries of cultures, languages, and traditions, provide a fertile ground for exploring innovative and context-specific approaches to special education. This volume is an endeavour to bridge the gap in knowledge and practice, challenging the one-size-fits-all approach that often permeates global discourse.

Our contributors are a blend of scholars, practitioners, and activists, each bringing their unique insights shaped by their experiences and research in Asian and African contexts. They offer critical perspectives, grounded theories, and practical solutions, reflecting the multifaceted challenges and opportunities in the field of special education within these regions.

The chapters in this book are organized thematically, covering a range of topics including cultural perceptions of disability, inclusive education policies, community-based rehabilitation, indigenous methods of special education, technology in special education, and the intersectionality of race, class, and disability. Each chapter not only provides a deep dive into specific issues but also illuminates the broader context, highlighting similarities and differences across various Asian and African societies.

One of the unique features of this volume is its commitment to not just academic discourse but also practical applicability. The chapters are enriched with case studies, narratives, and examples of best practices, offering readers tangible insights into the implementation of special education strategies in diverse settings.

As editors, we have endeavoured to ensure that this book serves as a valuable resource for a wide range of readers, including special education professionals, policymakers, researchers, and students. We also hope it will be a catalyst for iv further dialogue and collaboration between Asian and African countries in the field of special education.
