This book is about children with speech and language impairments and what teachers and other professionals can do to promote their learning and their social inclusion in a mainstream setting. A brief introduction to SLI is followed by a chapter on the main issues for the classroom; how teachers can support the preferred learning style of the children and literacy and numeracy strategies are each given a separate section. Inclusion involves more than the learning experience and so the social, emotional and behavioral agenda, including successful transition and working with parents, is given equal emphasis.
This is an invaluable and fully updated text on inclusive practice for all primary trainees and teachers and for those working towards the National Award SEN Co-ordination. It provides an equality- and child-centred approach to inclusion, combining both theory and practice while promoting critical thinking about the complex issues involved. Scenarios are used as the basis for unpicking major topics and provide opportunities for learning in context, while questions and reflections encourage deep thinking about key learning points. This second edition has been fully revised throughout and now includes: • full reference to the new Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (2014) as well as the Children and Families Act (2014) and Behaviour2Learn • two completely new chapters on understanding learners who are vulnerable and understanding learners with communication difficulties • extended thinking activities and extended reflections to support M-level study • an improved organisation with emphasis on the national priorities.
This fully updated second edition is an essential reference book that contains a wealth of resources and practical information relating to the education and care of children with special educational needs. Within its pages you will find an accessible, jargon-free overview of current SEN policies and how they affect parents, teachers and children; contact details of over 1,000 selected organizations, charities and services that exist to help the child with special educational needs; an extensive glossary of terms and medical conditions associated with special education; pointers to useful resources on the Internet; the names and addresses of Local Education Authorities, all of which can provide information on inclusive schooling; the names and addresses of over 1,800 special schools in the UK; and advice on how to make links with other professionals, to ensure all children with special educational needs are getting the attention to which they are entitled. Any teacher, teaching assistant, parent or carer of a child or children with special educational needs will find this book a useful companion.

The author addresses issues which affect access to the curriculum in Key Stages 1 to 4 and offers strategies to support children which have proved effective to experienced practitioners and can be managed in a group or class context. A key component of the book is an understanding of the emotional and social needs of children with dyspraxia.

Frank McCourts Erinnerungen an seine Jahre als Lehrer Dreißig Jahre lang hat Frank McCourt, der Amerikaner mit der unglücklichen irischen katholischen Kindheit, in New Yorker Schulen unterrichtet. Jetzt erzählt er, was er von seinen insgesamt zwölftausend Schülern gelernt hat – als Lehrer, als Geschichtenerzähler, als Schriftsteller. Ein Buch, wie man es liebt, aber selten findet: voll Witz und Charme, voll Verzweiflung, Ironie und Lebensweisheit.
Die Wissenschaft hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten vieles über den Haufen geworfen, was wir darüber zu wissen glaubten, wie das Gehirn Informationen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Fest steht: Wir lernen von Geburt an schnell, effizient und automatisch. Weil wir diesen Vorgang unbedingt systematisieren wollen, betrachten wir Vergessen, Schlafen und Tagträumen als hinderlich. Dabei sind sie wertvolle Hilfsmittel, die den Eigenarten unseres Gehirns Rechnung tragen. Benedict Carey erklärt, mit welchen Methoden wir uns Stoffe leichter einprägen und unser problemlösendes Denken verbessern können und wie wir die Potenziale des Unbewussten möglichst effizient nutzen – lernen, ohne nachzudenken. Nebenbei erfahren wir, dass Ablenkung zu Unrecht verteufelt wird, Wiederholung keineswegs immer weiterhilft und es sinnvoll ist, sich zu Themen testen zu lassen, über die man noch gar nichts weiß. Ein äußerst unterhaltsam geschriebenes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse, das zeigt: Lernen muss keine Qual sein.
