Description : Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in Schools is an essential resource designed to support you during and beyond your teaching training to understand, assess and address special and/or additional educational needs and disabilities (SEND). In addition to the expected updates throughout to the latest research and legislation, new developments include: - expanded discussions of key topics such as bullying, social, emotional and mental health - detailed coverage of planning for transition across the age ranges - suggestions of hardware and software for day-to-day use and use in exam conditions - increased focus on the importance of positive and supportive relationships Drawing on her wealth of experience, close contact with schools, families and students as well as relevant research, Janice Wearmouth explores a wide range of approaches to assess and address the most common forms of SEND. These include difficulties in communication and cognition, behavioural concerns related to social, emotional and mental health, sensory and/or physical needs, and literacy and numeracy difficulties. The author uses key questions to introduce each chapter, and reflective activities to encourage you to consider your own practice to ensure that all young people reach their potential. She illustrates policy and provision for SEND in a highly authentic and engaging way with a range of exemplars, vignettes and personal accounts of young people's and families' experiences within the field, and provides a wealth of additional resources on the companion website.

Description : “This book presents a stimulating and up-to-date overview of the context of education in SEN and suggests how educators can address special needs most effectively by keeping in mind an image of the development of the whole child. The editors have assembled an impressive range of thought-provoking contributions to the ongoing debate on the actual, the possible and the ideal responses that our education system makes or could make to the needs of its most vulnerable students.” Tony Cline, Educational Psychology Group, University College London, UK. “This book provides readers with a fresh, often incisive approach to many perennial issues in education. These include but are not limited to socio-political agendas in inclusion, labelling, learners’ self esteem and the delicate balance between different specialists within school systems that must be achieved in the best interest of the child with or without special educational needs and disabilities. Although written for a UK readership, the editors have ensured that the content of most chapters transcends national and systems boundaries with a healthy balance between psychological / educational theory and its real world application in contexts that may not be instantly responsive to the child’s changing needs.” Dr Victor Martinelli, University of Malta, Malta. “This book provides a welcome overview and commentary on current complex issues and problems affecting all those with an interest in children and young people with special educational needs. Ranging, as it does, from matters surrounding individuals such as labelling, therapeutic work and self-esteem to wider political, historical and socio- cultural influences, it provides the reader with a challenging, informed and critical set of perspectives. Its strength is the manner in which it tackles complex issues, providing thought-provoking views for those well versed in the world of special educational needs but also ensuring clear, comprehensive background information for novice readers of this topic. This book is an excellent compilation of relevant contemporary pieces thoughtfully woven together by highly skilled, well-placed editors.” Jane Leadbetter, University of Birmingham, UK. This thought-provoking and accessible book provides an overview of key issues in the education of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Written by highly experienced practitioners and educationalists, the book explores a range of approaches for working with this diverse group of learners and invites you to consider your possible responses. The book begins with an historical overview of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and a critical guide to current policy. The contributors then expertly explore and summarise many of the fascinating topics which arise in practice and scholarly research in this area, including: Ethical and practical implications of labelling children and young people with forms of special educational needs or disability The role of special schools, particularly in light of enduring debates about inclusion/exclusion What increased student participation, student voice and other facets of a democratic classroom mean for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities The contributions psychology can make to developing and enriching educational practice Understanding ‘behaviour’ in relation to children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Case studies are used to illustrate these discussions and the book includes suggested protocols for good practice throughout. Throughout the book the reader is asked to reflect on the issues presented and come to their own decisions about what represents good practice in their setting.The journey concludes with a look at a possible ‘ideal’ school or educational setting for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Contemporary Issues in Special Educational Needs is an invaluable guide for trainee and qualified teachers, learning support staff, SENCO’s, local authority officers, educational consultants and educational psychologists.

Description : Building Bulletin 102 provides a framework for designing new school buildings for disabled children and children with special educational needs (SEN) within any setting, mainstream or special. The purpose of this title is to offer a strategic master plan and a carefully considered brief to ensure that the design takes on board the organisation, aims and priorities of the school. This bulletin sets out 'inclusive design principles' that should underpin every project for disabled children and those with SEN. Case studies and illustrated examples are provided to show how these design principles can be implemented. The central chapters are divided by phase of education, highlighting to local authorities and all those involved in the early stages of a project the key features when designing specific school spaces. Technical guidance follows, covering building construction, environmental services and the ICT needed to support children with SEN and disabilities. Supersedes and replaces Building bulletins 77, Designing for pupils with special educational needs (1992, ISBN 9780112707967), 91, Access for disabled people to school buildings (1999, ISBN 9780112710622) and 94, Inclusive school design (2001, ISBN 9780112711094).

Description : In order to achieve the best outcomes for all children and young people, schools must work in partnership with students, parents, other professionals and the wider community. In this changing landscape of education, the notion of the traditional school is fast disappearing. This book looks at what is possible in this exciting new world, and how some teachers and other professionals are putting into practice the best principles of multi-agency working. Finding innovative ways of supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in this context is more important than ever, as children are being diagnosed with increasingly complex needs. Those working with children need to be aware of the fresh opportunities that are opening up and which can help every individual to maximise their full potential. This book examines how partnership working affects children with SEND by considering: - the diversity of additional needs; - the role of specialist schools that have an SEN specialism; - partnership working between mainstream and special schools; - partnership working with groups of schools, including those that are co-located or federated; - the growth of academies and trust schools; - schools and other services working together; - the work of extended schools and children's centres; - a wide range of other services for children, young people and families. Filled with case studies of effective practice from real schools and services, this book is a must-have for those looking at how to work together to achieve positive outcomes for all. Rona Tutt OBE is a Past President of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) and works as a consultant, writer and researcher on all matters relating to education in general, and special educational needs and disabilities in particular.

Description : All children do better at school with their parents behind them. Parental support is even more crucial to success for a child with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). Success is about communication and teamwork! If more schools encouraged and helped parents to work closely with teachers and specialists, to support their child's learning, success would be almost guaranteed. The focus of the book is on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities but the advice applies also to children without SEND, who need additional support in school. This book will help you understand the system, collaborate with schools more effectively - and get the results you want! The book is written for parents, in clear, accessible language and does not attempt to cover all aspects of SEND. It is written mainly from my experiences as a specialist teacher and school trainer.

Description : The integration of children with special educational needs was a crucial issue for the 1990s. Many countries were reassessing and reorganising their systems of provision in the light of legislation to provide entitlement for all. There was noticeable worldwide trend away from entirely separate provision for learners with special educational needs. At the same time there was no agreement on how exactly they should be integrated with other students. The reader will gain a clear understanding of educational provision, the societal forces that push for greater integration and the attitudes that promote or hinder educational success.

Description : The management of special needs, especially those of students of secondary age, has received considerable attention in the past decade and, in the light of the new education legislation, will assume a new urgency. The Management of Special Needs in Ordinary Schools provides an overview of the issues facing teachers in secondary schools with pupils who have special needs. These issues include managerial and curricular problems, in-service training, the use of new technology and developing community links. The book also illustrates the changes in thinking and practice since the publication of the Warnock Report, Special Educational Needs (1978). The contributors range from teacher to chief education officer, and include headteachers, psychologists, advisors and administrators, as well as those involved in educational research. Drawing on their experience in the mainstream and in special schools, at secondary level and in further education, their contributions reflect an active involvement in the development of new approaches within this area of education. The educational experiences of those with special needs can be considerably broadened and enhanced through imaginative management and skilful use of resources. The book therefore emphasises practical approaches to the day-to-day and longer-term needs of pupils with disabilities in ordinary schools. All those working within this area will find much of relevance to their own work.

Description : This book reports on the use of behavioural support – an evidence-based approach developed in the USA to meet students’ special educational needs – in Australia and selected thriving Asian countries. It brings together key issues and insights into how educational policy and practices in different societies and cultures influence the uptake of behavioural support in schools and classrooms. The book provides a balanced and highly informative perspective on the historical paths of development and current expansion of behavioural support into regular schools in the USA. It also offers insights into the progress of its implementation outside the Western context of the USA and Europe and its influence on capacity building among professionals within various contexts across the Asia-Pacific region. Case studies from Australia demonstrate the effectiveness of multi-tiered behavioural support in a state government education system for a population of diverse students, and address the resultant adaptation of tiers when it is implemented in a nongovernment school organisation for students with autism. Case studies from Singapore, Mainland China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan reveal the cultural practices and organisational issues that produce distinctive characteristics of behavioural support in inclusive and special education within these countries. This book offers essential guidance to educational decision-makers in these countries and communities around diverse students in considering their next steps towards using behavioural supports proposed in the American blueprints for implementing and building capacity for use in any context.

Description : Much has been written about special education and about inclusive education, but there have been few attempts to pull these two concepts and approaches together. This book does just that: sets special education within the context of inclusive education. It posits that to include, effectively, all children with special educational needs in schools requires an integration of both concepts, approaches, and techniques. It has never been more timely to publish a book that helps professionals who work with schools, such as psychologists, special education professionals, and counselors, to identify effective practices for children with special needs and provide guidelines for implementing these in inclusive schools.

Description : In 2005 around 18 per cent of all pupils in schools in England were categorised as having some sort of special educational need (SEN); around 3 per cent had a statement of SEN; and 1 per cent were in special schools. Although many of these children are receiving the education they need, there are large numbers who are being failed by the system. This report, based on over 230 written memoranda and oral evidence from 50 witnesses, considers how the Government can improve outcomes for all children with SEN and disabilities. It concludes that education has moved on in the past 30 years, yet the SEN system is still based on the 1978 Warnock Report and is no longer fit for purpose. The Government should clearly state a vision for children with SEN and disabilities an provide a National Strategy linked to minimum standards and a statutory requirement for local authorities to provide a broad continuum of flexible provision, including high quality special schools.

In years to come, professionals will remember they used Rona Tutt's book for identifying where good practice was really happening. Along with Rita Cheminais and Anne Hayward, this must rate as one of the most useful texts of the decade' - Tricia Barthorpe, Past President of the National Association of Special Educational Needs, (NASEN) How can your school or setting become part of a truly inclusive education service that provides for all children and young people? Looking at the Every Child Matters agenda and the government's strategy for special educational needs (SEN), this book moves beyond the debate about specialist provision to explore the exciting developments that are taking place in both mainstream and special schools, as they join forces to provide for pupils with increasingly complex needs. It provides examples of innovative ways forward that will help all schools develop their own strategies to support those pupils who find it hardest to learn. Topics covered include: o successful strategies for supporting pupils in mainstream schools o the benefits of co-located schools, federations and partnerships o the developing role of day and residential special schools o the changing nature of support and advisory services The book is essential reading for school leaders and senior management teams, and will be of interest to governors, policy makers and all those involved in the training and professional development of the school workforce. Rona Tutt is a Past President of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) and works as an SEN consultant, writer and researcher.
