About This Book
Schools are under more pressure than ever before to provide a good education for pupils with special needs. Revisiting the fifty schools that they researched for their 1985 ground-breaking study, One in Five, Paul Croll and Diana Moses provide an authoritative guide to the central issues of children with special needs. The authors also consider the provision for various special needs, including emotional and behavioral difficulties, ADD, Aspergers Syndrome, autism, and dyslexia. Based on research in special needs carried out in primary schools, this text presents qualitative/quantitative data and deals with issues such as: effects of curriculum; how judgements are made; the impact of policies; role of local government; and emotional and behavioural difficulties.
