  • Making good transitions from primary school
  • How to provide helpful INSET for colleagues (including teachers, senior managers, support staff and lunchtime supervisers)
  • Using a special interest as a tool for learning
  • Record-keeping, IEPs and sharing information across the school
  • Subject disapplication and formal examinations
  • Social strategies to employ in a large high school
  • Useful tips for staff – what to do and what not to do
  • Work experience, careers and self-advocacy

The importance of working closely with parents is also covered, as is dealing with challenging behaviour.

PUBLISHED REVIEWS:

‘The book not only gives sound advice, it helps the reader to find a wider range of sources of support and information… a useful, practical guide that makes the organisation of inclusive education achievable’ – Special

‘The book does have a number of useful strategies and tips, but it provides more than just a list of practical points. Support staff are encouraged to reflect upon their own practice and that of their school… The book is well worth buying and should appeal both to support workers and their managers’ – Support For Learning

‘The book fills a niche by distilling and providing information to busy teachers… an important little book that is quite readable and may be very useful to its intended audience’ – American Psychological Association
