Description

This fully revised and updated eighth edition (2021) of Peter Westwood’s book offers practical advice and strategies for meeting the challenge of inclusive teaching. Based on the latest international research from the field, it offers practical advice on both new and well-tried evidence-based approaches and strategies for teaching students with a wide range of difficulties.

As well as covering special educational needs, learning difficulties, and disabilities in detail, chapters also explore topics such as self-management and autonomy, managing behaviour, and social skills. The book offers sound pedagogical practices and strategies for adapting curriculum content, designing teaching materials, differentiating instruction for mixed-ability classes, and implementing inclusive assessment of learning.

Key features of this new edition include:

  • Additional information on linking all aspects of teaching to a Response-to-Intervention Model
  • A focus on the increasing importance of digital technology in supporting the learning of students with special educational needs and disabilities
  • Up-to-date resource lists for each chapter, for those who wish to pursue a particular topic in greater depth
  • Reflecting cutting-edge international research and teaching practices, this is an invaluable resource for practising and trainee teachers, teaching assistants, and other educational professionals looking to support students with special educational needs and disabilities
