Review:

It will provide both a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding, and a vehicle for instigating debate, reflection and professional development moving forward. This edition is something that should be read by all who work in the early years, given that understanding of both special educational needs and the policy requirements that surround it can always be enhanced among staff teams. (Neil Henty)
