Commonsense Methods for Children with Special Educational Needs
This fully revised and updated seventh edition of Commonsense Methods for Children with Special Educational Needs continues to offer practical advice on evidence-based teaching methods and intervention strategies for helping children with a wide range of disabilities or difficulties. The advice the author provides is embedded within a clear theoretical context and draws on the latest international research and literature from the field. Coverage includes:
learning difficulties and disabilities
students with autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disability, physical or health issues, and sensory impairments
gifted and talented students
developing social skills and self-management
literacy and numeracy
curriculum differentiation and adaptive teaching
computer-based instruction and e-learning.
Peter Westwood also provides additional information and advice on transition from school to employment for students with disabilities, lesson study, e-learning, and computer-aided instruction, and reflects on the important changes made within the latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).
