Teaching the Literacy Hour in an Inclusive Classroom
Supporting Pupils with Learning Difficulties in a Mainstream Environment
First published in 1999. This book offers clear, practical advice and guidance on how to encourage and support children who have special educational needs without losing sight of the needs of the rest of the class.
The focus is on children with a wide variety of special educational needs including emotional and behavioural difficulties, visual or hearing impairments, speech and language difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders. By looking closely at the key features of each difficulty, the authors show how to plan for these pupils and includes proven strategies.
