There are greater numbers of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) now attending mainstream schools. This fully updated and revised edition of Meeting Special Educational Needs in Primary Classrooms is written by an experienced teacher, adviser and SEN consultant and explains the challenges that these children face. This is a practical book full of guidance for teachers and teaching assistants who support children with SEND in mainstream primary classrooms.
Now fully updated to include the requirements of the 2014 Children and Families Act and SEND Code of Practice, this book:
- contains photocopiable resources and templates
- promotes successful communication between teachers, parents and students
- covers all aspects of teaching children with SEND, including planning, teaching and learning.
With practical guidance on how to make the curriculum more accessible for children with SEND, this book will help teachers and TAs work together to support pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities more effectively.
