This handsomely produced volume is a practical distillation of work on child development over four decades...The book is very detailed, with a careful definition of terms and thorough discussion of the steps to be expected as the use of each Tool for Learning becomes more fluent and more sophisticated.
'I worked for ten years in a mainstream primary school, the first four years as a special needs part-time teacher and then six years as as a SENCO/ pastoral support/ family support, also part-time. The school had high numbers of special needs children and many troubled children. Many children were over-social in the way they behaved. During my time at the school I introduced Functional Learning. I gathered all the materials - boxes and containers galore and interesting contents, bricks and trays, sticks, etc.
Very good book and the cd rom with tools included is an excellent guide and help. Gives very good guidance on aiding those working with children with developmental delay. Case studies included also beneficial
