This book is designed to give every Early Years practitioner the confidence to support children with special educational needs and disabilities. It covers:

A Guide to SEND in the Early Years dispels common myths around SEND and offers clear, concise and practical ways to translate theory into practice, overcome challenges and support children with SEND.
Written by an experienced Early Years consultant and inclusion specialist, there are tried-and-tested tips, case studies, activities and reflective questions. Focusing on the importance of teamwork and sharing responsibilities, this book is perfect for any Early Years practitioner looking to improve their understanding of SEND and develop their teaching with every child in mind.
