A fantastic review of ‘The Teacher’s Guide to SEN’ in SEN magazine

April 03, 2018

"The author, who specialises in SEN and school improvement, has held roles as a headteacher and SENCO and runs professional development courses in collaboration with national and international organisations. In this book, she sets out to provide class and subject teachers with the knowledge they need to meet the requirements of legislation."

“The book is divided into two main parts, with the first providing information on the current state of SEN, EHC plans and the implications of “high quality teaching” within an inclusive teaching environment. Further chapters cover the elements of successful SEN support and working in partnership with other professionals and parents.

Part 2 of the publication is titled “The Teacher’s Toolkit” and covers areas such as: communication and interaction; cognition and learning; social, emotional and mental health issues; and sensory physical needs.

The chapters share a common structure that details classroom strategies and specific activities, with links to published resources and websites. Packer includes short case studies that are based on classroom experience and on advice from practitioners and specialist organisations. Chapters end with short reflective activities and links to additional sources of professional development.

The book closes with a useful list of abbreviations, a glossary of related terms and a description of the roles of a range of associated professionals.

This is a practical and informative text that would be of value to a wide range of classroom practitioners seeking information and strategies for delivering more inclusive provision” - Mary Mountstephen, Special Educational Needs magazine, March-April 2018, Issue 93.
