The book is proving to be a fantastic support to myself and my cohort of level 3 learners, as a teaching resource and a resource learners can reference from and have a better understanding of the young children they are currently working with. The book is user-friendly, informative and one of the most inspiring books for a learner wanting to understand special educational needs/inclusion of children. --Ailsa Forster, Course Leader, Newcastle College.
The beauty of this book is that all the theorists are in here Bandura, Bloom and Rogers, as well as the classic Early Years people Piaget, Vygotsky and Montessori. This means that it is a neat, self contained book for those who simply want to know all about the thinking around Special Educational Needs (SEN) without having several different books for different areas of development... The emotional intelligence section... [has]... some discussion around the thorny issue of the additional emotional needs of a family who has a child with SEN. This section is an excellent starting point for investigations into emotional intelligence in general. --Kathy Brodie, Early Years Professional and Trainer, East Cheshire.
This is a superb book and I am a fan of these clearly and cleverly written theory books. This book helps students to understand the complexity of different theorists, in a comprehendable approach. Another excellent resource, looking forward to the next one! --Julia Dunn, Teacher, Bishop Auckland College.
Well structured and laid out ... the 'theory into practice' section is excellent. Builds well on books 1-3. --Sarah Barton, Senior Lecturer, University of Porstmouth.
Very useful for Special Needs Unit. --Judi Wheeler, Lecturer, City College, Plymouth.
