From the book's list of contributors –
Tünde Rózsahegyi is Senior Lecturer and Subject Leader for Special Needs and Inclusion Studies at the University of Wolverhampton. Previously, she trained and worked as a ‘conductor’, specialist educator of children and adults with disabilities through Conductive Education at the Pető Institute in Budapest, Hungary, then played a key role in establishing the National Institute for Conductive Education in Birmingham. Tünde has a strong interest in early pedagogical support for disabled children, their families and professionals; her doctorate examined outlooks on the early development and learning of young children with cerebral palsy. (p. xiii)
Mike Lambert writes on education and educational research. Previously, he taught in a variety of schools, with particular interest in the education of students with special educational needs and disabilities, and worked internationally for voluntary organisations in this field. Subsequently, he was Principal Lecturer in Education at the University of Wolverhampton; his doctorate focused on pedagogy for gifted students. (p. xii)

Inverted commas, what a nerve, presumably from the book's 'editor'.
