Special Needs and the Beginning Teacher by Peter Benton

Special Needs and the Beginning Teacher

Part of the Special needs in ordinary schools series Series


Special Needs and the Beginning Teacher by Peter Benton

Every teacher will encounter pupils with special needs. How to recognize those pupils, diagnose their needs and teach them effectively are crucial issues. This book provides accessible and reliable advice for new entrants to the profession.


The range of guidance is good Throughout the book, attention is paid to helping the child with special educational needs without nurturing a sense of confusion, failure or resentment .It gives a sound base of theory, policy and practical advice and I found it user-friendly and genuinely useful. Special Children, October 2000

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
