Special Educational Provision Summary

Special Educational Provision: Meeting the Challenges in Schools by Janice Wearmouth

The role of the Special Needs Co-ordinator within both mainstream and special schools is becoming increasingly high-profile and the demands being made on SEN departments are higher than ever before. This text recognizes and addresses teachers' increasing needs for more professional training and development to meet these demands. Going beyond a description of the role of the SENCO, this book contains essential guidance on every aspect of the challenges faced by schools in fulfilling their obligations to meet pupils' specific learning needs. The book aims to offer staff practical and theoretical help in order that they can make informed decisions, and has an interactive style which invites readers to engage with the core issues and perspectives it introduces through a range of integrated activities. Emphasis is placed on clarifying the underlying assumptions in the field so that teachers may adopt their own stance on key questions. Real-world examples of support for literacy development and the practical application of ICT are provided.

Special Educational Provision Reviews

The text is clearly aimed at SENCOs and Special Needs specialists within schools. The chapter on working with other agencies is particularly useful. At last a text which is both readable and yet in sufficient depth to meet the needs of my students! -- D Terry, Darlington College of Technology 20000623 A very interesting and useful book that is at the cutting edge of research, educational problem-solving and learning in schools. -- Mr R Lancaster-Gaye, Senior Teacher in an EBD Spec Bridges the gap between an academic perspective and practical handbook. There are many books in each of these two categories, but no other that I know of that encompasses both so clearly. -- Mr C Robson, former SENCO now LEA Advisor and OFST For heads and school managers special needs always seems to be the area that requires a bottomless pit of resources, staff and time. Janice Wearmouth shares an informed insight into how schools can get to grips with these common problems...The book has an excellent mix of worthwhile research, history, law, provision and perception within a complex area of management for schools. An ideal handbook for experienced Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCOs), it is also very useful for those new to the profession. The interactive exercises invite the reader to apply the challenging issues raised on paper to practical classroom situations...This welcome book will help SENCOs in schools manage their difficult jobs more easily. It will also assist anyone involved with special needs provision in planning their way through the maze of often conflicting demands and to provide for all children with special educational needs. -- Education Management 20010601 This well-written, accessible book is underpinned by a multitude of references to research findings, to government documentation, and to the academic literature on SEN...It is highly recommended to all those interested in SEN issues, particularly to SENCOs and would-be SENCOs. -- The Times Educational Supplement 20010406
