Abstract: As is usually the case, editing a special edition of a highly respected journal is a mixed blessing, especially when the journal articles are solely about a country that is very different from the homeland of the major readership of the journal - that is, North America. We are honored to be able to co-edit a journal as prestigious as the Journal of Learning Disabilities, and we have been delighted to include a number of articles that form a conspectus on learning disabilities (LD) and learning difficulties in Australia. We believe that the best service we can provide to the readers is to highlight the similarities and differences that exist in the way learning disabilities are conceptualized and operationalized in Australia compared to North America.
