Product description

All teachers will need to develop ICT skills to support children with special needs in mainstream schools. This book provides a range of information for the non-specialist teacher: how to access SEN information on the internet; generating and storing EPS electronically; equipment and software for children with particular problems, e.g. visual or hearing impairment, dyslexia or autism; using software to improve language development and self-esteem; solving access problems; helping children with behaviour problems through ICT Many teachers still find it difficult to make effective use of ICT, but the benefits of computer technology for children with communication problems and other special needs are clear. By reviewing both hardware and software applications, this book acts as a valuable reference for teachers, special needs assistants and carers.

Review quote

"'Unlocking Potential is an example of how much good sense and valuable advice can be packed into less than 100 pages. A good book, worth buying, which is easy to read; it should find a place on all staffroom resource areas.' Chris Abbott, TES ONLINE MAGAZINE"
