'This book is like a 12-week speech and language therapy training course for education staff, crammed into a nicely presented package which is easy to read and dip into. I will not hesitate to recommend it to school staff as a 'crash course' in supporting secondary pupils with SLCN - an excellent resource that should be in every staffroom' -

'This book will make a valuable conntribution to the area of meeting the needs of pupils with SLCN in post primary settings and...would be of significant benefit to teachers and other practitioners in the field including parents, educational psychologists and speech and language therapists, as it identifies the common ground on which they all can operate'
- Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs

'This excellent book is aimed specifically at professionals who are supporting older children and young people (ages 11-19) experiencing speech, language and communication difficulties (SLCN)...SENCOs, specialist teachers working in schools and support services, and special school outreach teachers will find this to be an invaluable resource' -

'You can't go wrong with this book if you are working with pupils with SLCN at secondary level as it is a mine of information and advice, all of which is easy to follow and take on board. I also think it is useful for specialist professionals to use in their training. I shall certainly be doing so' - Glinette Woods, Special Advisory Teacher, in NAPLIC

'This book will be highly useful to practitioners in educational contexts who work with children and young people with SLCN. Clearly organised, it is easy to navigate to find what you need. It is resource-rich with illustrative case studies, lesson plans, and website access to further materials such as interview questionnaires and assessment and planning cycles. A particular strength is the inclusion of parents in assessment and education practices. Every practitioner who works with school age learners with SLCN should read this book. It combines readability with research-informed practice and is an essential aid for professional development and interprofessional collaboration' - Deirdre Martin, Senior Lecturer, University of Birmingham

'This book would be a useful source of material for any practitioner working with students with SLCN. A clear, well conceived publication' - SNIP

'[This book is] one of the most useful, and used, books on my shelf. There are lots of practical tips that will be of immediate use to teachers, many of which require little effort to implement and will make a significant difference to the student involved. The style is clear and accessible, with a good balance of research evidence and practical advice' - Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists Bulletin
