Managing Special Educational Needs
A Practical Guide for Primary and Secondary Schools
- Suanne Gibson - University of Plymouth, Exmouth
- Sonia Blandford - Canterbury Christ Church University, UK
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.
`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
'It is a very practical account and should be a handbook for any newly appointed SENCO...For experienced SENCOs and organisations where inclusion is not an issue, this book is a reminder of good practice'. - Annie Williams, Primary School Inclusion Manager, Special, May 2007
