This book is a very useful addition to my reading list. The module in question is called, children and young people with medical needs, which means that students need to know about inclusive practice and the new SEND code of practice and associated legislation. The book covers a wide range of the concepts which are introduced and explored during the course of the module and is very timely in respect of recent changes in relevant policy.

This is an excellent general guide to educating those with a variety of SEN. As an FE lecturer who works with students with PMLD, I found the article on using AFL for students with PMLD particularly interesting. A wide range of article covering a vast range of SEN, thoughtful and clearly based on practical experience. Easty to read and browse when time permits. My SEN specialist L3 TAs found this very helpful.

A comprehensive text which is essential reading for practitioners working with children with additional needs.

An excellent resource for anyone considering working with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities - full of practical, relevant suggestions and thought provoking case studies and containing up to date guidance on current legislation. I would particularly recommend this to students on a course with a work experience element as it raises issues they might not consider before commencing a SEN placement

This will be listed as a core reading book for the second year undergraduate module. It provides an excellent overview of key areas; writing is very clear and easy to understand. The structure with key points to remember, reflective activities and case studies to relate theory to practical experience make this an invaluable tool for all trainees and qualified teachers.
