'This is a most worthwhile book which contributes significantly to the general body of knowledge on managing pupils with special education needs. I found it interesting and informative. Schools cannot but benefit from the book's scope, and from insights into the many and varied aspects on SEN provision' - REACH `A particular strength of the book is the way in which individual chapters provided "self-contained" material which lends itself for use in school-based staff development activities. The book includes a lot of information that SENCOs, inclusion managers and members of school leadership teams should find useful' - SENCO Update `The strongest point about this book is that it gives a good overview of the history of special educational needs policy in this country, including recent development on inclusion' - TES Extra Special Needs 'It is a very practical account and should be a handbook for any newly appointed SENCO... [while] for experienced SENCOs and organisations where inclusion is not an issue, this book is a reminder of good practice' - Special Written from a practitioner's perspective, this book shows schools how to effectively implement and manage an inclusive school environment. Drawing from their experience in a range of schools, the authors highlight the problems encountered by professionals in both primary and secondary school settings and offer practical solutions and advice. The book offers guidance on: the role of the SENCO as a teacher and manager; government policy and legislation; self-evaluation, good practice and monitoring; how to relate SEN to school targets and development plans. Primary and secondary school teachers, headteachers, student teachers, SENCOs, LEA Advisers and professionals involved in the management of Special Educational Needs in schools will find the practical support offered in this book invaluable.

In September 1994, the Code of Practice on the Identification and Assessment of Special Educational Needs came into force, and with it a major increase in the expectations placed on teachers in mainstream schools, in particular on the SEN coordinators. This handbook discusses the implications for schools and gives practical guidance on how to implement the code effectively. Throughout, the book provides: * Further information, expanding upon that given in the Code * Examples * Ideas for dealing with SEN in schools * Checklists * Proformas for photocopying and direct use in schools The book begins by explaining and expanding on the Code of Practice, setting it in the context of recent developments including the Education Reform Act and OFSTED criteria for evaluating policy and provision for children in SEN. It then goes on to provide guidelines for implementing the Code of Practice at each of the five stages which it specifies and discusses issues which are raised by this. Specific chapters cover: * Identifying and assessing SEN within the school * Liaison with outside specialists * Statementing * Annual reviews * Knowledge needed by classroom teachers of children with SEN * Implications and issues at different stages of the education system * Parental involvement * Future challenges The book will be of particular interest to special needs coordinators, but will also be of value to anyone else working with children with SEN, including class teachers, heads, advisers, governors, educational psychologists and education welfare officers.
