The Effective Teacher's Guide To Sensory Impairment And Physical Disability
Practical StrategieseBook - 2006
Sensory impairment and physical disabilities are associated with a range of conditions that can cause learning difficulties for children. These conditions are often also linked with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. Teachers are likely to have to deal with anything from mild to severe cases, and need to be equipped with practical strategies for effective inclusion. This essential guide clarifies the definitions of sensory impairments and physical disabilities, and examines medical conditions that may lead to the need for SEN provision, including epilepsy, Tourette syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome. Writing in an accessible style, the author looks at ways of dealing with a variety of conditions, always with practical classroom situations in mind.
