Review quote

This volume would be a superb acquisition for anyone new to the post of SENCO or SEN teacher and of equal value to those undertaking postgraduate training in this area. The individual essays are written in consistent style and are exceptionally clear and accessible... Additional materials, exemplar learning and behaviour plans, level descriptors and schemes of work are available through a special website that supports the book and adds significantly to its value in the classroom. This book is full of practical strategies that are lucidly presented and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone working with the field of SEND. -- Martin Edmonds, SENCO This comprehensive book is a must have for anyone working with children and young people with SEND. It is an up-to - date reference book which is easy to read and set out in an easily accessible format so busy professionals can dip in and out as required. It covers all ages and relates to both special and mainstream settings. Written by a number of SEND experts it not only provides the theory but has great examples of good practice strategies you can use in the classroom. -- Lorraine Petersenshow more
