Key areas covered in this guide include:

  • Physical needs, such as visual impairment (VI), hearing impairment (HI), and physical disability

Additionally, the book offers valuable insights into the numerous acronyms commonly used in SEN. “The Teacher’s Guide to SEN” emphasizes that with the right support, these diverse needs should not hinder learning.

This comprehensive guide equips teachers with practical strategies to ensure high-quality teaching for all students. It includes real-life case studies, key facts, and reflective questions, covering topics such as understanding responsibilities, identifying students with SEN, making reasonable adjustments, fostering inclusive teaching, building relationships with students and their families, and collaborating with teaching assistants and external agencies.

Relevant for both primary and secondary educators, this resource serves as a valuable reference for teachers, including trainees, NQTs, and experienced practitioners looking to enhance their classroom practices and effectively address SEN.
