This is a super book that is clear for the students to understand, I referred to this regularly whilst teaching the inclusion module
Useful information for module studies. Was good for linking to practice too.
This is a child centred focused book. It has a good balance of theory and practice which will support students with their knowledge and understanding of SEND in the early years.
A detailed yet accessible text covering guidance for practitioners working with children with special needs in early years settings, with a clear focus on provision of services and the importance of working with families. Recommended for students who wish to work in an educational setting to help develop an understanding of the multi-agency provision available.
A very usefull and informative book for students to use to supplement their knowledge of SEND in the Early Years
I have found this a really useful text and a good addition to our reading list for a module on inclusion in the 3 - 7 age range of the Primary School. Will continue to use and recommend as a good and accessible source.
