Special Educational Needs: The Key Concepts


Exploring the complex issues that surround special educational needs (SEN) both in and out of the classroom, this reader-friendly text considers the impacts that these issues have upon the child, the parent, the teacher, and the school as a whole.

Fully cross-referenced and including suggestions for further reading with each entry, areas discussed include:

  • pupil rights and empowerment
  • parents and care workers 
  • curriculum and teaching
  • inclusive approaches
  • historical dimensions.

Providing an informative combination of practical, historical and legal terms and concepts, Special Educational Needs: The Key Concepts is a highly useful resource accessible to a broad audience.
