    Teaching a class of learners with many different additional educational needs can be challenging to the extreme. Based on the latest national legislation and the importance of achieving 'inclusive communities' within schools, this book provides succinct and practical information on working with children with a full range of additional educational needs. This book:

    • covers unfamiliar areas beyond the typical SEN spectrum - such as gifted and talented, bilingual learners and supporting children in care
    • appropriate for every key stage and educational setting
    • includes case studies, discussion questions and key issues to help develop reflective practice
    • Makes close links with the Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) standards.

    Accessible and user-friendly, this book will be essential reading for all students of education – including teaching assistants, trainee teachers and newly qualified teachers – on a range of learning support courses (Foundation Degree, BA QTS and PGCE).
