Special Educational Needs provides teachers with strategies and practical teaching ideas for including students with special educational needs in mainstream language classrooms.
`"One of the great strengths of this book [is] that it so
effectively integrates students with SEN into the mainstream
classroom by encouraging teachers and other students to understand
and celebrate all their individual differences... extremely useful
and informative... Although this book is written for primary and
secondary school teachers, it can be used by teachers in a wide
variety of settings and across different age ranges. In fact, many
can be used with adults with little or no adaptation. This is a book that should be on every teacher's bookshelf."'

`"The author, an educational psychotherapist, advises us to 'see the person, not the disability'. This book is rich in practical ideas and strategies - using mind maps, playing mood music, learning through games and colour-coding patterns within words. The section on assistive technology is especially useful. Informative and helpful."'
" after reading Special Educational Needs I felt less of the 'lost and confused' marked in the Introduction... One would surely wish for SEN to become an essential part of teacher education and a thoughtful and practical book such as Special Educational Needs is an important step towards guiding the profession in this direction."Modern English Teacher
`written by [an] educator and expert who [is] very knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate about the subject... The book gives teachers more strategies and develops confidence and an understanding of how to assist SEN learners... extremely useful... [teachers will] love the snappy and adaptable activities offered...'
