The Neurodiversity Handbook for Trainee Teachers

The Neurodiversity Handbook for Trainee Teachers

Considering a neurodivergent world is vital in society today, and even more so in the classroom. This book will support your knowledge and development as a trainee teacher so you can better understand the complexities of working with neurodivergent pupils. Starting with a model of difference rather than deficit, this book will guide trainee teachers to understand neurodiversity within the classroom, providing strategies which aim to support their students.

Sarah Alix, the writer of The Neurodiversity Handbook for Trainee Teachers, is certainly the kind of authoritative voice on neurodiversity that those new to the teaching profession will benefit from hearing. [...] It is exactly the kind of book that educational professionals need, to understand what it is to be neurodivergent and how teachers can support their neurodivergent students, in their classrooms on a daily basis.
