About the Author
I am an educational consultant and author specialising in behaviour management, inclusion, raising achievement and teaching and learning (science). I have been in the teaching profession for over thirty eight years, specialising in science and design and technology. In 1989, along with a colleague, I started an integration project involving children with severe learning difficulties. The project received national recognition in the media and became the longest running of its kind in the UK at that time. From a place due for closure following re-organisation in 1993, the school at which I taught received national acclaim for raising its achievement via national league tables. The department I led was regularly in the top 25% in the country and the subject I taught, electronics, was in the top 5%. I have maintained an average value added score of more than 1 since that time, using the many of the techniques developed as part of the integration project. I moved to Jersey, in the Channel Islands, and took on the role of behaviour support as part of the school’s B.E.S.D team. At the time there was little expertise around and I had to develop many of my own strategies. As a result of experience gained I was commissioned to write, ‘Understanding Challenging Behaviour in the Inclusive Classroom’ (Routledge). I have delivered in-service training on the subject as well as advising the local authority in respect of their inclusion policy.
