Written to assist teachers and other professionals who support children with visual impairment and additional difficulties, this text examines the role of touch in developing effective teaching and learning. The book is divided into eleven chapters that provide useful background information about the sense of touch, and consider how potential barriers to independent learning through touch can be reduced through structuring appropriate learning experiences. A series of reflective activities are included which are designed to draw out key issues from relevant chapters and invite the reader to explore the implications for his or her practice. A number of these activities are designed to cross-reference with relevant extension standards from the National SEN Specialist Standards for teachers and recommendations about further reading and teaching resources are provided throughout the book. This text will be useful for teachers and learning support staff working with children who have visual impairment and additional difficulties. It will also have relevance to other professionals working with children with severe and complex needs who wish to understand more about the role of touch in developing effective learning experiences.

This book addresses this question, looking at pupils’ special learning needs including low attainment, learning difficulties, language difficulties, emotional and behavioural problems and sensory needs. Some special needs groups (for example dyslexia) have argued strongly for the need for particular specialist approaches. In contrast, many proponents of inclusion have argued that ‘good teaching is good teaching for all’ and that all children benefit from similar approaches.

This book is a succinct and distinctive presentation of current research addressing educational issues in relation to children and young people with disabilities in Southern contexts. Even though people with disabilities are disproportionately over-represented in the majority world, there is a lack of texts which bring together empirical insights highlighting the unique socio-economic and cultural realities of these contexts and the ways in which these have shaped developments in education. This book provides a comprehensive and critical overview of a range of issues, such as the dilemmas in conceptual translations, analysis of international aid and national policies, evaluation of various educational interventions, and issues interrogating the purpose of education. Bringing together various research projects conducted in eight different countries, this book successfully captures a unique spread of cross-cultural issues. It was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Inclusive Education.

How do you teach history to a child who can't remember what she had for dinner? What difference will it make to a child's counting skills if you place the objects in a line, rather than dropped randomly on the table? Will breaking down a task into smaller steps help a young person learn how to dress himself? Children with learning disabilities do not follow set patterns of learning, and yet often they are expected to learn in the same way as their non-disabled peers. Christine Turner draws on 25 years' experience gained from teaching children with severe, profound and multiple disabilities to provide an introduction to learning disabilities and the effect they have on the individual and the family. She proposes holistic strategies to ensure that every child makes progress, regardless of the extent of their disability. All aspects of learning, from the simplest forms of non-verbal communication to the way ICT can motivate and inspire are explored in this practical and informal guide for anyone wanting to support a child with learning difficulties.
