"This is a refreshing and comprehensive book providing an excellent introduction to theory and practice in SEN. It will be much in demand and appreciated by all teachers who are attempting to tackle the issues and questions that can accompany the desire to meet the learning needs of all children."

As a trainee or newly qualified teacher, being faced with students labelled as having 'special educational needs' can be a daunting prospect. The whole area of SEN and 'inclusion' is often shrouded with uncertainty about what it means, either in theory or in practice, and what it entails.
This guide addresses these issues in a straightforward, supportive and practical way, focusing on the needs of the beginning teacher. Using case studies, activities and resources, it will equip you with the skills and knowledge to support groups of pupils with SEN in different settings and phases.
