Book Description

Completely revised and updated in light of the new SEND 2014 Code of Practice, this new edition supports teachers in making good provision for children and young people with a range of co-ordination difficulties.

Offering practical tips and strategies on how to meet the needs of children and young people with dyspraxia and other coordination difficulties in a range of educational settings, this book features timesaving checklists, templates and photocopiable resources to support professional development. The wide-ranging and accessible chapters explore topics including:

  • Identification of different types of motor co-ordination difficulties
  • Implications for classroom practice
  • Understanding core skill development
  • Assessment practices

Written by practitioners, for practitioners, it also contains a wealth of tried and tested strategies and provides clear best-practice guidance for developing outstanding provision in inclusive settings.
