Book Description

Both disabled and non-disabled children need help in recognising and understanding aspects of disability and inclusion. Bestselling author Margaret Collins provides a resource for the busy classroom teacher to engage all children in inclusive education. The book will create positive attitudes and will help change children's perceived negative feelings. It demonstrates: * That there are different kinds of disabilities * What they can do to help * How to show empathy * How to interact.  The first section focuses on making sure all pupils with disabilities are given a voice. The second section provides eight units of work that examine areas such as race, speech and language, stereotypes and specific special educational needs.  The author follows her usual pattern of providing facing pages with differentiated activities for younger and older pupils. This allows a pick and mix approach. The book includes teacher notes, Circle Time, extension activities and photocopiable resources (also on CD Rom.)
