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.

When considering speech and language impairment we are talking about a significant proportion of school-age children. This book describes how speech and language difficulties can adversely affect children's learning, in both specialist and mainstream settings. It outlines the main areas of difficulty for pupils, and suggests how teachers can make the curriculum more accessible for such pupils so facilitate learning.Expressive language, receptive language, social use of language and developmental co-ordination difficulties are discussed, as are specific curriculum subjects like English, maths and science. Throughout the book there is a balance of information and practical ideas for supporting these pupils, and a comprehensive selection of suggestions for good practice. Included is a motor skills programme, rhymes for speech production and memory work, and photocopiable dictionary pages.
