Rona Tutt’s Guide to SEND and Inclusion provides a vital and focused insight into the complex and overlapping worlds of education, politics and academia. By considering inclusion as a process rather than a place, Dr Tutt addresses directly the thorny issue of defining what is meant by the term inclusion and the potential implications for children and young people with SEND.
This book is a useful guide for any educational professionals interested in understanding more about SEND and inclusion, but it is particularly relevant for school leaders, SENCOs and strategic decision makers. Practical activities, case studies and real examples are included throughout to encourage the reader to question and reflect what is happening in their own settings and to consider how they might improve the effectiveness of their own inclusion practices.
In addition to considering the current state of play, Dr Tutt looks back at how attitudes to SEND have changed over time as well as considering what more needs to be done in the future with some attention given to both national and international perspectives.
This book is an essential read and a fantastic opportunity to learn directly from Dr Rona Tutt OBE, one of the leading lights in the world of SEND and inclusion.
