Working with Hannah is a unique and detailed snapshot of the first years of schooling for a child with Down's Syndrome and severe mobility and communication problems. Written by two classroom assistants, who supported Hannah during her two and a half years in a mainstream infant school, this book shows how the right level of support can make inclusion a success not only for the child and family but also for the school itself. This practical guide describes the 'hands on' approach of Hannah's day-to-day management in a busy school. Topics covered include:
*finding a school
*how the school prepares
*adapting the curriculum
*recognising the importance of friendship
*incorporating therapies into the school day
*additional aspects of personal and, physical care
*setting up communication systems.
There are key points at the end of chapters, which highlight the salient aspects and offer practical advice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Inspiring and helpful to any parent starting their child in mainstream schooling, and any teachers worried about taking the first steps.' - Pat Dolan, parent from Stockport

'This is a delightful, practical account of the integration of a young child with Down's Syndrome into a mainstream infant school. It shows how positive the experience can be for everyone involved when there is a good level of support from the education authority, school and the family. It is a powerful argument for finding the money to pay for proper support for children with special needs. When I am teaching a child with Down's Syndrome I will certainly go back to this book for ideas and advice. I am impatient to follow Hannah through the next stage of her education. Can we have the sequel please?' - Lise Bosher, Viewpoint
