  • IDP Ideas and Strategies
  • SEN without IEPs
  • Achievement for all
  • School Improvement and SEN

The toolkit is full of practical guidance, empowering ideas and challenging assertions about inclusion. The book is now a first point of reference in over 7,000 schools. It presents many strategies for meeting diverse learning needs and methods for overcoming barriers to learning. These are clearly rooted in good practice and draws on a wealth of relevant experience.

In this third Edition, Neil discusses how to boost the learning of dyslexic and other SEN pupils. He tackles the tricky subjects of School Improvement through boosting the confidence of SEN learners – building the Inclusion Development Plan into whole school practice and developing robust dyslexia-friendly practices in busy and diverse schools.

Through his work and his writing Neil demonstrates a wholehearted commitment to Achievement for All and a love of a challenge. His practical ideas for inclusion can be adopted by all teachers, no specialist knowledge is required.
