This is an invaluable and fully updated text on inclusive practice for all primary trainees and teachers and for those working towards the National Award SEN Co-ordination. It provides an equality- and child-centred approach to inclusion, combining both theory and practice while promoting critical thinking about the complex issues involved. Scenarios are used as the basis for unpicking major topics and provide opportunities for learning in context, while questions and reflections encourage deep thinking about key learning points. This second edition has been fully revised throughout and now includes:
* full reference to the new Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (2014) as well as the Children and Families Act (2014) and Behaviour2Learn
* two completely new chapters on understanding learners who are vulnerable and
understanding learners with communication difficulties
* extended thinking activities and extended reflections to support M-level study
* an improved organisation with emphasis on the national priorities.
Janet Goepel has been a teacher for many years and developed an interest in special educational needs through having children with additional needs in her class. She has taught children with profound and multiple learning difficulties who otherwise would have had to attend a special school. She has also taught children with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD as well as children who have social difficulties. Working with these childrenwas rewarding as well as challenging, taught her a great deal and changed her practice as a teacher. She now teaches Inclusion at Sheffield Hallam University and hopes to pass on her passion for inclusive practice to trainee teachers. Helen Childerhouse is a senior lecturer in primary and early years teacher education at Sheffield Hallam University. She teaches on undergraduate modules that involve professional practice and supports trainees whilst they are on placement. She also teaches on the modules which focus on inclusive practice. Sheila Sharpe is a Senior Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University.
