Understanding Children with Special Needs EPUB
by Lynn Stow, Lorna Selfe
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Special Educational Needs series
Originally published in 1989. This book is designed as an introduction to the field of special education for all those students and professionals - teachers, social workers, psychologists, medical officers, nurses, speech therapists and others - who encounter children with special needs.
The authors first discuss current legislation in its historical context and draw attention to the major issues and controversies. They go on to analyse a variety of learning difficulties. Physical and sensory disabilities, emotional and behavioural problems, may all give rise to special educational needs. The book then considers how childrenâ€™s special needs may be met in terms of curriculum, resources and provisions. It concludes with some prognostications and a critical review of current practice.
