A very useful practice guide to supporting children with particular needs with clear overviews of behaviour/difficulties associated with these. Useful overview of current legislative frameworks. A long awaited comprehensive guide for teachers. --Lecturer, University of Cumbria
I found this to be a very clear and concise text. Easy to dip into with a relevant range of topics. I think student teachers would find this useful to help them understand basic concepts. --Lecturer, University of Derby
