This text focuses on the educational behaviour of the quiet child, including a range of case studies in which pupils reveal how their relationships with their parents influences their perception of themselves and their school life. The book is designed to help teachers understand the difference between shyness and severe withdrawal, and offers helpful advice on how best to meet the needs of quiet pupils. The result of considerable research, this book should help teachers identify teaching strategies for these pupils.
