Special Educational Needs in the Early Years

Employing a comprehensive blend of theory, policy and practice, Penny Borkett unpacks the vital elements of SEND in the Early Years through the lens of inclusion.

This title incorporates:

Written in an accessible format for foundation and undergraduate courses. This book is rich with case study experiences surrounding the complexities of inclusion. It both challenges and informs.

I would recommend this book as an informative and engaging introduction to Inclusion in the Early Years. Key terminology is defined and the concept of inclusion is explored within a historical and political context.  Case studies, strategies and reflective questions challenge thinking and support professional practice.
