This third edition of Supporting Inclusive Practice builds on the successful format of the previous two editions, both in content and structure. It explores many aspects of inclusive practice relevant to those who work with children in schools and other educational settings, aiming to provide the most up-to-date theoretical knowledge and understanding in the field, and illustrating the theory with examples of good practice in the areas explored. Many of the topics that have appeared in the previous editions, including supporting children for whom English is a second language, children on the autistic spectrum and children with neurodiversity conditions, also appear in this edition. The revised content of this third edition also covers recent and relevant changes in national policy and legislation, particularly, for example, around changes in equality and disability, same-sex parenting and transgender children and parenting policy and legislation. It explores the impact on aspects of inclusive practice legislation such as the Equality Act 2010, Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 and the Children and Families Act 2014. It also explores in detail the revised 2014 SEN Code of Practice and the introduction of the pupil premium in 2011, which provides support for the education of children from low income families or who may be children who are fostered or in care. Throughout, the book is informed by the solution-focused social model of special educational needs and disability, and reflects current national policy that sees inclusive practice as fundamental to ensure equality of educational opportunity is achieved for all children.

Similar to a handbook in its comprehensive description of the theory and research supporting current practices in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders, this interdisciplinary text shows how the existing knowledge base can be used to explore promising new possibilities related to the fieldâe(tm)s many unanswered questions. Key features include the following: Comprehensive âe" This is the first book to consider the history and current state of autism as a field in transition, to cover its varied approaches and philosophies, and to describe the interventions used throughout the developmental cycle. Cross Disciplinary âe" Serving students with autism necessitates communication and collaboration among professionals from several disciplines as well as family members. The editors have, therefore, brought together divergent perspectives, theories and philosophies in order to demonstrate that scientific evidence, rather than educational orientation, must determine which practices should be selected for use in particular situations. Research Based âe" Whereas many existing texts advocate a particular type of treatment, this one recognizes that interventions must be selected and evaluated based on the scientific evidence of their effectiveness. Integrated Methodology âe"Chapter authors consider findings from studies that employed single-subject designs, experimental large-scale studies, and qualitative methodology. The inter-relatedness of therapies and disciplines will be highlighted throughout. Expertise âe" The volume editors are all highly visible researchers in autism and developmental disabilities. Likewise, each chapter is directed by a senior, highly accomplished author who is nationally recognized for his/her work in the topic being addressed. This book is appropriate for practicing professionals in education and psychology and for speech/language therapists and other clinicians. It is also suitable as a graduate level text in these fields.
