0 Reviews

Aimed at all those wishing to develop inclusive practice, this book introduces a theoretical framework for managing an inclusive approach to developing SEN practice within primary and secondary schools, together with some early years examples. Throughout the emphasis is on how to make inclusive practice work in school settings. It includes strategies to overcome common problems; examples of successful projects; case studies illustrating points made; INSET activities for training purposes; and discussion points at the end of each chapter.

SENCOs and those training SENCOs should find this book particularly helpful. Members of senior management teams and anyone interested in developing inclusive practice will find it equally relevant to their needs.
