The area of special needs in education has changed fundamentally over the last decade. There is a shift from considering methods of helping individual children to the question of special needs within the context of school and class. This book looks at the whole question of context and offers the reader a range of methods for seeing children's needs in different ways. The book begins by examining the context in which special needs are defined: at classroom, school and wider levels, and suggests strategies for effecting changes in these contexts. Part 2 is about the whole school, how to plan for special needs, and curriculum reform. Part 3 is about the classroom, and explores in detail ways in which teachers can prevent children becoming "special" by using support staff, grouping, particular teaching methods, well-organized resources and parental support. The book is aimed at teachers at primary and secondary level, trainee teachers and educationalists.
