This issue of Exceptionality Education International was published by the former editorial team at the University of Alberta. This is the last issue from the previous editorial team; however, there are a few more articles that will be published that were accepted before the journal transferred to the Canadian Research Centre on Inclusive Education at Western University. We would like to thank the previous editorial team, which consisted of Judy Lupart, Christina Renaldi, Donna McGhie-Richmond, Jessica Whitley, Nikki Nosworthy, and Holly Stack-Cutler, for bringing this issue to fruition and for all of the support that we have received as Exceptionality Education International transitioned to Western University and the new platform of bepress. Going forward, unless they are part of a special issue, articles will be published on-line as they are accepted. Our next special issue focuses on “At Risk Youth” and is expected to be published in the Spring of 2014. This upcoming issue is guest edited by Nancy Hutchinson of Queens University in Kingston Ontario and Nancy Perry of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver British Columbia. We hope you enjoy the articles which ensue. Sincerely, Jacqueline Specht, Tim Loreman, Gabrielle Young, and Sharon Penney, your Editors of Exceptionality Education International
