First published in 1986. Following the Warnock report, schools attempted to integrate the teaching of children with special needs into ordinary classrooms. Many teachers had no experience of teaching children with special needs and the new developments were likely to pose a substantial challenge. This book provides a guidance for inexperienced, especially new, teachers in how to teach children with special needs in ordinary classrooms. An important feature of the book is realism – the book grows out of the author’s own experiences and research. The author describes what really happens and bases his suggestions on practices which are likely to bring results.
