'A very helpful resource to have.' — Specialist Teacher Adviser with Communication and Language Team

'The author does not dwell on theory,.. instead she focuses on activities that will make a difference.. The imagery is contemporary and clean, and the book's spiral binding makes it easy to keep open on the desk during activities.. This book is highly accessible, and a copy in every staffroom would be a good place to start.' — Cate Wood, SEN teacher and trainer with 30 years of experience
