Supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities
Part of the Bloomsbury CPD Library series
According to the most recent SEND Code of Practice, every teacher is a teacher of children with special educational needs and disabilities, and yet teachers often receive little or no training in this area.
Despite their best intentions they are therefore often ill-equipped to rise to the challenge of helping their students achieve the best possible educational outcomes.
This comprehensive resource will equip primary and secondary teachers and SENDCos with the training and skills they need to fully support children with SEND in mainstream classrooms. Cherryl Drabble draws on her vast experience as a CPD leader, NQT mentor and her many years of working with SEND to share guidance, practical activities and strategies for evaluating and strengthening your practice and that of your colleagues.
The book provides a set of ready-to-use training plans, accompanied by PowerPoint slides available to download online for free, so you can train your colleagues in this essential area and ensure the best support possible for students with SEND across your school.
In total, the book offers over 50 hours of CPD, equating to a cost of less than 50p per hour of training!
