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).
