Education Studies: Key Issues
This third edition continues to guide students through the challenging field of special educational needs and disability. Contextualising SEND in relation to historical, ideological and political developments, this book offers essential support to students as they develop a critical and up-to-date understanding of the practical challenges and opportunities concerning inclusion.
New edition features include:
• Up-to-date legislation, such as the SEND Code of Practice
• Material surrounding social, emotional and mental Heath
• New practical case studies, reflections and activities
• Revised chapter summaries
• More on the future of SEND
Very few books manage to blend critically applied historical, social and political analyses of the issues explored here. This updated version is a must read for those studying SENDI in the fields of Childhood and Youth Studies, Education Studies, Social Policy and related fields’
This updated edition is a key text for students on Early Childhood degrees. It provides useful background information around the development of special educational needs and disability (SEND), highlighting key legislation and defining key terms. Case Studies, reflections and student activities support students to debate the contested nature of SEND.
An excellent book that supports our Early Childhood Students to understand good practice and the care and sensitivity required when working with children who have SEND during their work placement, and when working in the sector.
Useful for Early Childhood Studies and Education Studies courses
An excellent update on all things SEND. This will be invaluable in supporting staff development with our organisation's Learning Support Assistants.
Very good overview of key issues in special educational needs, disability and inclusion.
Great text for consolidation of concepts and ideas
Key issues are discussed in detail providing an opportunity for critical discussion.
The book offers a lot of case studies and is easy to read. It provides a good overview about SEND and Inclusion, the development of these concepts and a current international perspective of Inclusion
This is a somewhat generalist publication providing an overview of special education and so is useful for the PG Cert SENCO. However, it could also be used to inform undergraduate SEN courses.
