4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sarah Combe on 1 Aug. 2012
Format: Paperback
There is a growing pressure on mainstream education to develop more inclusive approaches towards children's learning in their schools. This book is very useful in helping to develop conversations and ongoing reflection through self evaluation of inclusion within a school development context. The book is very accessible offering questions to help evaluate the school's efforts in meeting the needs of all pupils. It helps you to reflect on areas such as self evaluation, data analysis and how to use data to identify children who need intervention, intervention planning, provision mapping and also target setting. There are also case studies, templates and other useful information for the reader to use within their own settings

The author is passionate that school's need to engage the whole community to ensure that meaningful change can occur and develop. Therefore, this book is not just for SENCo's but for all education professionals. The author encourages the joint effort of all staff to find relevant ways to incorporate all processes within the school and to make class teachers central in this process. It is important for the reader to remember that each school is at a different stage of development and that the book needs to be moulded and used personally in their own school context. This is not a `quick fix' it will be a process that will be an ongoing cycle of development.

I will be using this book within my role as Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator in my school and as part of my research project for obtaining a Masters in Inclusive Education. Of particular interest was the chapter on "Inclusive Interventions" and meeting the needs of children by adapting their learning to suit their particular needs. How can schools do this more effectively?
