Summary of contents
It is very much part of a teaching assistant’s role to help provide a learning environment that enables every pupil to achieve their potential. This book has therefore been planned to help all teaching assistants to find information they need about a variety of special educational needs as quickly as possible and to give them lots of practical strategies to try with the children in their class.
This book will provide teaching assistants with very useful basic information about many areas of special educational needs, which will enable pupils to feel included in all areas of the curriculum and the social life of the school.
The book also contains a list of abbreviations surrounding special needs which are featured in the book.
