Effective Interventions and Strategies for Pupils with SEND
Using Evidence-Based Methods for Maximum Impact
Effective Interventions and Strategies for Pupils with SEND offers practical, tried-and-tested strategies for supporting and championing pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. Each strategy has been researched, trialled and reviewed, with the results presented accessibly and the concerns of real teachers a key focus of the discussion.
With each chapter written by an experienced and innovative teacher working with children with SEND, this book covers a wide range of strategies for supporting pupils with SEND. These effective strategies include:
- Using a ‘daily run’ to improve concentration and behaviour
- Creating SEN champions and more effective teaching assistants
- Embedding anxiety-reducing strategies in the classroom.
Written for teachers by teachers, Effective Interventions and Strategies for Pupils with SEND is an indispensable resource for all SENCOs and other educators and staff working with children with special educational needs looking to provide the best learning experiences possible.
