Description

Helping you develop the confidence and basic skills needed to understand and support children with special educational needs, this guide will support you in tackling the everyday challenges that working in an inclusive classroom poses. The Essential Guide to Special Educational Needs will provide advice and support in recognising and identifying children with special educational needs, while also providing practical guidance to help you support the needs of individuals in your classroom.

“I asked myself if this book could enhance the professionalism of teachers in general. It will, irrespective of any specialism… This book should help to disperse the fog of ignorance and prejudice and I wish that some of my school teachers had read something like it.”  Cliff Jones, Critical Professional Learning, Vice Chair of the International Professional Development Association (IPDA)
