A Quick Guide to Special Needs is an easy go-to guide for busy teachers, SENCOs, practitioners and anyone else who is interested in pragmatic solutions to the challenges of teaching children and young people with additional needs.

Detailing over 60 conditions which cause people to have additional needs, Bob Bates helps you broaden your understanding of different physical, neurological, psychological, and developmental needs with accessible bite-sized explanations of the conditions, best practice approaches to working with these learners, and how to apply them to your everyday teaching.

Each individual need is explained over a 2-page spread and every entry includes:

Case studies encouraging you to reflect on real-life situations to understand the impact each condition has on people and how they and their parents deal with it.
Do it steps offering a simple step-by-step approach that you can follow in order to meet additional needs arising out of these conditions.
Important steps for the classroom specifically for teachers to use.
Recommended reading, suggesting books, articles and websites where further information on specific conditions are available.
Whether you’re a newly qualified or experienced teacher, or simply want to further your understanding on the vast variety of individual needs, this guide is the ideal dip-in dip-out reference point for SEND.
