Commonsense Methods for Children with Special Needs: Strategies for the Regular Classroom
This book provides teachers with an immediate and comprehensive source of practical ideas for use in regular classrooms. The author has drawn upon his own teaching experience and upon research to identify well tried and tested approaches covering basic academic skills improvement, behaviour management, social skills development and curriculum adaption.
The third edition has been totally revised, with the addition of two new chapters dealing with early identification of, and instructional methods of intervention against, learning difficulties. The combination of the most recent research and clear, practical advice make this a valuable resource for further study.
