This updated edition is a key text for students on Early Childhood degrees.   It provides useful background information around the development of special educational needs and disability (SEND), highlighting key legislation and defining key terms.    Case Studies, reflections and student activities support students to debate  the contested nature of SEND.

Not suited to course (PcET). It would be a good source for Undergraduate Education degrees.

This well written work provides a good introduction and background to the main debates that have influenced Special Educational Needs.

An impressive text with full coverage of current legislation relating to SEN, which is presented in a clear and accessible format for the reader. Useful case studies are provided throughout which apply theory to practice and opportunities are given to reflect on the content of each chapter. A great introduction to such an important topic.
