- a timeline showing the development of policies and legislation in the field;

- learning objectives at the beginning of chapters;

- points for reflection within chapters, to aid independent study and facilitate critical thinking;

- new case studies, which cover the Birth to 8 age range;

- new content on the role of fathers, pupil voice and listening to children, taking an holistic view of the child, and current issues around diversity and inclusion.

This book is essential reading for early years students and practitioners, and for all those working with young children with special educational needs and their families.
