The Teacher’s Guide to SEN is the essential guide for supporting children with special educational needs in the classroom. Relevant to all primary and secondary practitioners, the book provides key information on SEN, along with a range of practical tips and ideas to use in the classroom.
Natalie Packer offers advice on how every teacher can effectively teach all pupils, including those who require additional support and provision, in line with changes resulting from the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice, which was first introduced in 2014. The comprehensive advice includes: defining special educational needs, providing SEN support and high quality teaching, effective partnership working and tracking progress.
The book outlines some of the most common areas of need, including speech, language and communication difficulties, autism, moderate learning difficulties, dyslexia and social, emotional and mental health needs. It contains practical hands-on strategies, key facts, real-life case studies and questions for reflection.
The Teacher’s Guide to SEN is an essential point of reference for any busy teacher, including trainees, NQTs or those more experienced practitioners who would like to gain a few new ideas to try in the classroom.
