Managing Special Educational Needs
A Practical Guide for Primary and Secondary Schools

First Edition

March 2008 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Written from a practitioner's perspective, this book shows schools how to effectively implement and manage an inclusive school environment. Drawing from their experience in a range of schools, the authors highlight the problems encountered by professionals in both primary and secondary school settings and offer practical solutions and advice.

The book offers guidance on: the role of the SENCO as a teacher and manager; government policy and legislation; self-evaluation, good practice and monitoring; how to relate SEN to school targets and development plans.

`A particular strength of the book is the way in which individual chapters provided "self-contained" material which lends itself for use in school-based staff development activities. The book includes a lot of information that SENCOs, inclusion managers and members of school leadership teams should find useful' - SENCO Update

'It is a very practical account and should be a handbook for any newly appointed SENCO...For experienced SENCOs and organisations where inclusion is not an issue, this book is a reminder of good practice'. - Annie Williams, Primary School Inclusion Manager, Special, May 2007
