Book Description

This book provides a quick and easy reference guide to different types of sensory impairment, including causes, symptoms and the implications on teaching and learning. With most children and young people with hearing or visual impairments attending mainstream schools, this book explains the most effective and practical strategies for use in mainstream classrooms. Fully up to date with the 2014 SEND Code of Practice, this accessible resource is split into two sections: Supporting Children with a Hearing Impairment and Supporting Children with a Visual Impairment. The wide-ranging chapters include:

  • Educational access for pupils with hearing loss
  • Teaching phonics
  • Teaching deaf pupils with English as a second language
  • Identifying children with visual impairment
  • Classroom management
  • Adapting resources

This practical text provides strategies to use in schools to ensure that children with sensory impairments are fully supported. Featuring useful checklist and photocopiable resouces, it contains a wealth of valuable advice and tried-and-tested strategies for teachers and support staff working in early years settings, schools, academies and colleges.

"This book provides a quick, easy reference guide to different types of sensory impairment, including causes and symptoms, and the implications for teaching and learning. Fully up-to-date with the 2014 SEND Code of Practice, this is an accessible resource in two parts. The first part deals with support for children with a hearing impairment; the second part deals with supporting children with a visual impairment. Highly practical and full of strategies and resources, this is a great book." - Martine Horvath, EYE
