Special Learners in School: Understanding Essential Concepts
Offering a wealth of photocopiable resources for use with individual children or small groups, Special Learners in School provides a step-by-step programme to help practitioners support children with a range of special educational needs, and develop the skills which are fundamental to their learning in the mainstream classroom. Competencies including active listening and observation skills, memory, comprehension of pattern and sequencing, positional and expressive language, body awareness and emotional intelligence are all key to ensuring a child's access to the school curriculum. Recognising that these can be particular areas of difficulty for pupils with SEND, this book provides a range of activities designed to engage and gradually develop children's use of auditory and visual memory, pragmatic and sensory skills. Easily accessible and differentiated for children at lower and upper levels of ability, practical examples and activities can be used immediately, or be adapted in line with students' abilities and progress. This will be an invaluable source of inspiration and activites for learning support assistants, teaching assistants, teachers and SENCOs looking to support children in mainstream schools as they develop skills fundamental to their learning.

Picture Inclusion!: Snapshots of Successful Diverse Classrooms
Picture one guidebook that gives you the fundamentals of inclusion, proven practices for teaching everyone, and dozens of student profiles and sample lesson plans. That's what you'll get in Picture Inclusion!, your theory-to-practice guide to teaching every learner in a diverse inclusive classroom. You'll begin with a reader-friendly introduction to the why and how of inclusion in Grades K-5, including the foundations of inclusive education and guidelines on key concepts: universal design for learning, response to intervention, alternate assessment, and more. Then you'll go inside three model classrooms for an in-depth look at how to support students with a wide range of learning needs. For each model classroom, you'll find *Snapshots of 20 diverse students and their teacher. Each snapshot introduces you to a student, clarifies their support needs and goals, shows you their IEP or 504 plan (if they have one), and shares a support schedule and concrete strategies for helping the student reach their goals. *Eight sample lesson plans for teaching core academic areas and specials. Each plan gives you learning objectives, preparation steps, sample scripts, and step-by-step teaching guidelines. *Dozens of adaptable inclusive practices to support individual students and groups. (Also available in the appendix as an Inclusive Practices Bank!) Brimming with the practical tools and wisdom you need to create lessons that support every learner, this hands-on, how-to resource will help you move inclusion from a lofty ideal to an everyday reality.

On the Fringes: Preventing exclusion in schools through inclusive, child-centred, needs-based practice
Too many of our vulnerable young people are being excluded - even those with SEN and the very young who are only just on the cusp of school life. And having seen first-hand the impact that exclusion has on children with often unmet medical needs - such as autistic spectrum condition (ASC) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - Jackie explores in this book the realities of what exclusion means to each of us and its impact on wider society. Jackie examines this critical issue through the lens of her experiences in both mainstream and specialist settings and presents practical, solution-focused guidance to help schools deliver the inclusive education that every child deserves. Drawing upon a range of sources, Jackie's wide-reaching analysis is backed up with case studies, up-to-date research and anecdotal reports - setting out a balanced view focusing on the stated and underlying needs of schools, staff, parents, children and other agencies. On the Fringes scrutinises exclusion procedures and reviews the SEND Code of Practice in depth, particularly highlighting the role of early interventions in detecting underlying SEN and medical needs. Jackie also explores a range of pre-emptive and alternative approaches that can be employed as part of a whole-school approach to pastoral care and behaviour management that develops pupils' self-awareness and self-regulation. In doing so she offers informed inspiration to teachers and SEN practitioners working with some of our most vulnerable children - who, without our care, compassion and tailored provision, are too often destined for lives on the fringes of society. Suitable for teachers, school leaders, SEN professionals, policy-makers and parents.

Using Drama with Children on the Autism Spectrum: A Resource for Practitioners in Education and Health
The second edition of Using Drama with Children on the Autism Spectrum takes the perspective that support for the learning and development of children should have the purpose of giving them the freedom to be more fully who they are and able to function more effectively as themselves in a wider range of contexts. The focus of this new edition is on learning outcomes as expressed by autistic people, for example, to develop better understandings about the social world and to know how to manage everyday situations more successfully. This practical resource book contains more than 150 activities for use with children aged 5-11 years old. Written for mainstream and special education teachers, speech and language therapists, drama teachers, play workers and creative arts therapists, the book shows how using drama with children across the autism spectrum can provide valuable experiences in being with others and communicating with them in enjoyable ways that support the development of well-being and confidence. In addition, drama is presented as a rich medium for reflecting on everyday social situations and developing children's understandings about the social world. Complete with case studies, photocopiable resources and step-by-step guidance on how to facilitate drama activities that all children can enjoy, this practical resource will be invaluable for those who are looking for new ways of engaging children on the autism spectrum and their peers. The second edition of this practical resource has been extensively revised, updated and re-focused in line with current practice and thinking.

Unconditional Education: Supporting Schools to Serve All Students
After decades of reform, America's public schools continue to fail particular groups of students; the greatest opportunity gaps are faced by those whose achievement is hindered by complex stressors, including disability, trauma, poverty, and institutionalized racism. When students' needs overwhelm the neighborhood schools assigned to serve them, they are relegated to increasingly isolated educational environments. Unconditional Education (UE) offers an alternate approach that transforms schools into communities where all students can thrive. It reduces the need for more intensive and costly future remediation by pairing a holistic, multi-tiered system of supports with an intentional focus on overall culture and climate, and promotes systematic coordination and integration of funding and services by identifying gaps and eliminating redundancies to increase the efficient allocation of available resources. This book is an essential resource for mental health and educational stakeholders (i.e., school social workers, therapists, teachers, school administrators, and district-level leaders) who are interested in adopting an unconditional approach to supporting the students within their schools.

100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Supporting Pupils with Autism
100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Supporting Pupils with Autism is an essential resource filled with tried-and-tested ideas to best support the learning and development of pupils on the autism spectrum, in both mainstream and special schools. The reported incidence of autism has risen dramatically in recent decades and the agenda for 'inclusion' has necessitated a greater understanding of autism in primary schools. However, already stretched school budgets mean that staff are often unable to access courses for further training in this area. Francine Brower uses her extensive experience and expertise to present 100 practical ideas to enhance learning and development by focusing on the needs of the individual pupil. This dip-in-and-out book offers ways to enable teachers to better understand autism and how they can create a more supportive learning environment. There are also strategies to help children develop their communication and social skills, and become more confident and independent as individuals.

Effective Early Intervention: The Latest Research Analyzed Through the Lens of the Developmental Systems Approach
After decades of rapid evolution and groundbreaking research, the field of early intervention can be understood within a common framework: the Developmental Systems Approach (DSA). Created by a highly influential leader in the field, Michael Guralnick, this evidence-based, relationship-oriented, family-centered framework focuses on strengthening the quality of key family patterns of interaction that influence a child's development. The overall integration of developmental science, our knowledge of risk and disability, intervention science, and practice provides the structure for the DSA. In this important volume, Guralnick organizes and analyzes the most current research and developments in early intervention through the lens of the DSA. Starting with a clear explanation of the foundations of early intervention, the book then applies the DSA to four vulnerable populations: children at risk due to biological factors, specifically preterm birth, children at environmental risk, children with developmental delays, and children with autism spectrum disorder. Readers will discover how the DSA can guide the development of effective services and supports for diverse young children and families, and they'll come away with insights on how to use this framework to improve early intervention programs in their own communities. An invaluable reference for early childhood researchers, faculty, and policy makers, this forward-thinking book is the key to establishing inclusive community-based early intervention systems that nurture each family's strengths and promote child development. READERS WILL: Understand the developmental science that applies to all children Learn how child development is influenced by three critical family patterns of interaction-parent-child transactions, family-orchestrated child experiences, and parent promotion of child health and safety Explore the influence of family resources as well as child-specific risk and protective factors on a child's health and development in the context of early intervention Discover ways to select interventions that are most effective for children and families based on intervention science and the DSA conceptual framework Learn the fundamentals of applying the DSA framework to designing and implementing inclusive community-based systems of early intervention

Critical Essays on the New Moral Imperative for Supporting Marginalized Students in PK-20 Education
Marginalization of groups transpires when a dominant group precludes a group of individuals from participating in activities or gaining access to services. As the global economy and technologies have significantly changed, it has been assumed that equal access to educational opportunities would be more readily available for traditionally ostracized groups. In contrast, the opposite has occurred: the exclusion from educational, social, and political activities among marginalized groups has become much more pronounced, necessitating the imperative for a new moral dialogue among teachers and teacher educators. Critical Essays on the New Moral Imperative for Supporting Marginalized Students in PK-20 Education provides relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area of social justice and critical pedagogy as it relates to teaching culturally, economically, ethnically, socially, or other marginalized PK-20 student populations. This book highlights a variety of topics such as educational technology, ethical theory, and digital agency. It is ideal for teaching professionals, pre-service and in-service teachers, educational researchers, administrators, sociologists, teacher preparation faculty, and students.

Originally published in 1995, this book offers a crucial view of the implementation of legislation for the integration of pupils with special educational needs in EU countries at the time. The match or mismatch between the rhetoric and reality, between the policy and the practice are reviewed by presenters from a recent appraisal of progress in individual national contexts. Authors are critical of the situation in their own countries and call upon recent and relevant research sources to support their views. The relationships between particular themes in the education of pupils with special needs are observed and compared in a broad European context.

Special Education Law Case Studies: A Review from Practitioners
Tremendous changes have occurred over the past decade in the provision of services to students with disabilities. Federal mandates continue to define requirements for a free appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment. Additionally, there has been an increase in the number of lawsuits filed against school districts regarding the provision of educational services for students with disabilities. Case studies are a helpful way to understand these difficult issues. The case studies presented here are actual students eligible for special education and related services. The case studies are represented not to tell districts and parents that this is the only way questions about special education law can be answered, but to provide likely answers along with commentary for analysis. The cases were developed to help new (and experienced) special education leaders and supervisors survive the pressures of working with students with disabilities while working to provide appropriate services and prevent litigation.

Disability and World Language Learning: Inclusive Teaching for Diverse Learners
The release of a report by the Modern Language Association, Foreign Languages and Higher Education: New Structures for a Changed World, focused renewed attention on college foreign language instruction at the introductory level. Frequently, the report finds, these beginning courses are taught by part-time and untenured instructors, many of whom remain on the fringes of the department, with little access to ongoing support, pedagogical training, or faculty development. When students with sensory, cognitive or physical disabilities are introduced to this environment, the results can be frustrating for both the student (who may benefit from specific instructional strategies or accommodations) and the instructor (who may be ill-equipped to provide inclusive instruction). Soon after the MLA report was published, the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages issued Diversity and Inclusion in Language Programs, a position statement highlighting the value of inclusive classrooms that support diverse perspectives and learning needs. That statement specifies that all students, regardless of background, should have ample access to language instruction. Meanwhile, in the wake of these two publications, the number of college students with disabilities continues to increase, as has the number of world language courses taught by graduate teaching assistants and contingent faculty. Disability and World Language Learning begins at the intersection of these two growing concerns: for the diverse learner and for the world language instructor. Devoted to practical classroom strategies based on Universal Design for Instruction, it serves as a timely and valuable resource for all college instructors-adjunct faculty, long-time instructors, and graduate assistants alike-confronting a changing and diversifying world language classroom.

From Cradle to Classroom: A Guide to Special Education for Young Children
From Cradle to Classroom: A Guide to Special Education for Young Children is a book written for regular and special education teachers, school administrators, school psychologists, related educational personnel, day care providers, parents, graduate students, and policy makers who work on behalf of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to ensure they are ready for formal education when they reach age 5. It reflects a keen understanding that early interventions are most effective in reducing the potential for special education or other support services later in a child's development. Research shows the benefits of investing in early intervention and high-quality preschool as a way to mitigate educational gaps in learning and to improve the development of children across all domains (Executive Office of the President of the United States, 2015; Lynch & Vaghul, 2015; Yoshikawa et al., 2013). Throughout the book, readers will find strategies to help atypical children navigate the world as they move from infancy to toddlerhood, and to preschool and beyond. The chapters dig deep and offer expansive understandings of the components necessary to ensure young children, especially those with exceptionalities, become successful students.
