Inclusive Principles and Practices in Literacy Education
This volume draws together research and practice from the fields of literacy education and inclusion. As such it provides an insight into current theory, research and issues associated with teaching literacy to all students in inclusive classrooms. Literacy remains a critical success factor for students, as the basis for concurrent and future learning throughout the curriculum. As such, we take a broadened view of inclusive education and include not only students with disabilities and learning difficulties, but also those whose linguistic, cultural or social backgrounds act to marginalise or inhibit their learning. Numerous books publish research on inclusive education but this volume is dedicated to the critical aspect of literacy and inclusive practices in a range of countries. The changes to literacy in today's technological world are considered along with the impact on teaching and learning. Examples of good practice are provided, as are models of effective inclusion and differentiation in literacy teaching at different year levels, for different groups of students and the application in important subjects such as mathematics and science. Chapter authors have expertise in the fields of pre-school and early literacy, mathematical, technology and science literacy, English as an additional language, literacy difficulties in primary and secondary schools, inclusion and special education. They provide highly relevant research and useful information for researchers, teacher educators and those engaged at all levels of the implementation of inclusive literacy education in schools.

Your Special Education Rights: What Your School District Isn't Telling You
Jennifer Laviano and Julie Swanson, a high-profile special education attorney and a special education advocate, tell parents of students with disabilities how to navigate their school system to get the services they need for their children. The authors demystify the federal laws that govern the rights of public school children with disabilities and explain how school districts often ignore or circumvent these laws. They explain the often sordid politics of special education, exposing truths like the fact that teachers are under extraordinary pressure not to spend resources on costly services. Most importantly, they show parents how to get the services their children are entitled to and make the system work for them. Many parents don't know they can: Ask the school for an evaluation of their childGet a second opinion if they disagree with the school's testingRequest parental counseling and training (to help understand their child's disability and child development, for example)And so much moreComplete with checklists and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Your Special Education Rights provides parents with the substantive information they need and the practical strategies that work.

Classroom-tested lesson plans include procedure outlines and assessments as well as guides for adaptation, accommodation, and modification needed for successful implementation in K-12 classrooms. As such, this eminently practical resource provides teachers with enough practical ideas to allow them to begin to create and adapt their own lesson plans for use with students of differing needs and abilities.

An Emerging Approach for Education and Care: Implementing a Worldwide Classification of Functioning and Disability
An Emerging Approach for Education and Care provides a synthesis of the extensive research that has been conducted worldwide about the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth in education and care. The main purpose of the ICF is to provide a classification of functioning for adults and children with difficulties, considering their everyday lives, all the activities they perform and the environments they are embedded in, in addition to their health condition, which has been the traditional focus of Special Education provision in many countries. Each chapter presents an evidence-based study describing how the ICF has been used to improve the provision of services for children and young people with Special Educational Needs around the world. Moreover, each chapter is written by an expert on the ICF from a different country, thus providing an overview of how the ICF can be applied in international educational contexts with different educational and health systems and cultural backgrounds. This synthesis of world-leading research focuses on the ICF as a framework to approach assessment, intervention and classification for children and young people with SEN, whilst also providing practical examples of how it can be implemented. An Emerging Approach for Education and Care will be essential reading for academics, researchers and practitioners working on Special Educational Needs provision and rehabilitation. It should also be of great interest to those involved in the study of early childhood education, and for postgraduate students aspiring to work in these settings.

The arts have a crucial role in empowering young people with special needs through diverse dance initiatives.

This volume foregrounds dance for young people with special needs and presents best practice scenarios in schools, communities and the professional sphere. International perspectives come from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Cambodia, Denmark, Fiji, Finland, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, South Africa, Taiwan, Timor Leste, the UK and the USA. Sections include: * inclusive dance pedagogy * equality, advocacy and policy * changing practice for dance education * community dance initiatives * professional integrated collaborations

TaSSeLs Tactile Signing for Sensory Learners (2nd edition): For staff working with children and young people
The TaSSeLs system uses touch to promote meaningful interaction with children and young people who have profound and complex learning disabilities, and often visual and/or hearing impairments. The training pack explores the role touch can play, and explains the three different methods of delivering the signs: hand-under-hand (preferred method), hand-under-hand (adapted method) and the on-body method. This updated second edition of the TaSSeLs Tactile Signing for Sensory Learners resource pack has been revised and updated based upon the feedback of users in order to provide even more clarity and guidance. It provides all the necessary resources to use the system, as well as new strategies that will help increase the interaction between learner and adult. The training pack offers practical visual aids in order to ensure the training is as easy and clear to deliver as possible. The index includes detailed descriptions of the signs, with 176 colour photographs to illustrate. The pack includes a CD-Rom which offers guidance on creating prompt cards, as well as specialist software so these can be personalised to suit the learner's needs. A DVD demonstrates how to carry out all of the signs, using the three approaches. It is strongly recommended that those who wish to use the materials in a professional capacity receive training from the TaSSeLs team. Please contact Joe and Denise at tasselstactilesigning@gmail.com. Testimonials: `I have introduced TaSSeLs with a number of my clients, ranging from ages 21/2 to 19 years old. One of my most successful users is Harrison. Harrison has a diagnosis of spastic quadreplegia, developmental delay, cortical visual impairment and epilepsy. He was 21/2 years old when I met him and was a very unsettled little boy who startled at any unexpected sound or movement... Harrison's startle reflex would set off frequent seizures and he was unable to focus on anything for more than a few brief seconds. TaSSeLs was the first thing I introduced and it has been used consistently by his team for the past two years. Harrison is now a cheerful little boy who loves annoying, loud, silly noises, tickles and action rhymes.' Natalie R. Morris, Lead Speech & Language Therapist, Director, Integrated Therapy Solutions `As a teacher of children with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) the use of TaSSeLs has been invaluable in the classroom. It has given staff and parents a very meaningful, appropriate and effective way of communicating with children who were previously unsure of their surroundings or what was happening to them.'

Throughout the book is informed by the solution focused social model of special educational needs and disability, and reflects current national policy that sees inclusive practice as fundamental to ensure equality of educational opportunity is achieved for all children.

Achievement for All in International Classrooms: Improving Outcomes for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
The organisation Achievement for All engaged in international projects in England, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, South Korea, the United States of America and Wales with the aim of raising the aspirations, access and achievements of vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people. These projects were united in bringing Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) back into the classroom by focusing on the relationship between parents, leaders, teachers and wider professionals. Achievement for All in International Classrooms examines these projects, looking at the context of each and the research findings, before considering how this could enhance knowledge and understanding in other international settings. Sonia Blandford examines the policy implications needed to bring SEND into the classroom, understanding of the scale of the issue, moral purpose, belief, commitment, collaboration and determination, through evaluation, research and practice. She also considers what it takes to change practice, bringing Achievement for All and SEND into the classroom, looking in particular at the implications for: - Leadership - Teaching and learning - Parent and carer engagement - Wider outcomes and opportunities - Professional development for all staff Drawing on her wealth of experience and expertise, Blandford then makes recommendations on what it would take to introduce Achievement for All in policy to bring SEND into the classroom, with particular reference to changes at national, regional and school level, as well as parental and carer engagement and a desire to improve outcomes for all children and young people.
