This book was ok, although I don't feel that it taught me anything new. I'm a SENCO in a secondary school, and the suggestions only really touch the surface of some of the things teachers can be doing to help those with SEN. For example, what about those with dyslexia/ dyscalculia/aspergers/autism? A comorbidity of these? Differentiation is definitely important, and the message certainly has to be refreshed within academic establishments- but more specific intervention advice would have been helpful.
Also, I don't think the spelling/grammar has been checked through very thoroughly within this text!!

I bought this book as a SENCO, I was hoping to leave it in the staffroom as an easy read. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY. It is no better than a list of questions no real help. The font is very large and there is no real tips in there. Most teachers would know this kind of stuff! I was extremely disappointed at wasting my money. Even when I contacted the seller (WHO ALSO HAPPENS TO BE THE AUTHOR) he did not even offer me a refund! I could find NO tips that where helpful.
