Overview

Written in the context of recent legislation concerning disability and special educational needs, this practical guide contains helpful information about a range of special educational needs and provides clear guidance to help assistants give support in schools and pre-school settings.

The advice promotes the inclusion of all pupils and suggests ways to raise the achievement of every individual. The following areas are covered: definitions of SEN and the principles of inclusion; the Code of Practice (2001); the Disability Discrimination Act and the implications for schools; target setting and IEPs; the role of the assistant in giving support; working with other professionals; and a glossary of terms.

The book looks in detail at how to support pupils with a wide range of special educational needs: communication and integration difficulties; social, emotional and behavioral difficulties; cognition and learning difficulties; sensory and physical needs; and medical needs.

It should appeal to assistants and to everyone involved with making their school or setting a more inclusive place.
