Mainstream teachers are often unsure how to adapt their regular teaching practices to support Special Educational Needs in the classroom most effectively. This useful guide provides teachers with all they need to know about teaching special needs students in a mainstream context and demonstrates how their existing skills can be used to create an inclusive environment for all students.

Following a modern ‘a la carte’ concept, the book acts first and foremost as a teaching menu, offering a variety of options that teachers can use as and when they see fit. Written in a jargon-free, accessible style, the author gets to the heart of issues associated with teaching mixed ability classes, offering more flexible alternatives to traditional teaching strategies and suggesting helpful approaches that really work. Maintaining that teachers are usually far more capable of catering for special needs than they believe themselves to be, the book allows them to choose methods that suit their own personal style and the specific needs of the individual student. Essential background information on Special Educational Needs including dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger Syndrome and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is included throughout.

Combining practical methods with factual information about learning difficulties, this book is an invaluable resource for non-specialist teachers supporting children with special educational needs in inclusive classrooms.
