This series, like Supporting Literacy, builds on Andres Brodie'saptitude for making things really straightforward for less able pupils.Teachers need materials that are suitable for the increasing number oflower ability children in the mainstream classroom. These children whoneed 'additional' or 'different' help (roughly one in six children fallinto this category), are often supervised by classroom assistants. National Test results indicate that children, especially boys, arestruggling with their writing. 'One in five children who entersecondary school are officially behind in reading and writing.'Inspectors also reported on the continuing gap between girls and boys,which they say is particularly pronounced in writing. All activities are linked to the new Literacy framework through aprocess of 'tracking back' and are intended to help lower abilitypupils make progress in order to catch up with their year group. Eachlearning objective is addressed by one or more pages and each page willinclude notes for teachers enabling anyone using the sheet to see itspurpose immediately. Recording and monitoring pupil's progress areintegral to all books.

Heterogeneous classes including students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) are increasingly becoming fixtures of the twenty-first century school. As a result, the question of how to devise more effective, innovative and diverse tools has posed a significant challenge for educators and the research community. This collection considers how technology may provide SEN children with greater opportunities to acquire academic skills, while preparing them for a successful transition to adulthood. Computers, and other new technologies, hold great promise for facilitating the inclusion of SEN individuals into modern society. Precisely because they are characterized by multiple representations of knowledge, computerized learning environments offer effective support tools for the instruction of SEN students faced with barriers that make learning a more complex process. Yet, despite the blossoming of this field, research on how the use of technology may benefit SEN students is in its early stages. The development of the theoretical knowledge and empirical databases necessary to assess the impact of computers on learners’ characteristics and educators' teaching goals lag behind the introduction of the respective technological innovations. To meet this challenge, this volume presents a review of the latest advances in how new technologies and their software may potentially enhance SEN students' performance, in school and out. This book was originally published as a special issue of the European Journal of Special Needs.

Executive functions are a set of cognitive processes we use to act on information, manage resources, and plan and monitor our own behaviour, all with the aim of achieving an end goal. These are skills that develop from infancy. While 'reading' has been extensively studied in psychology literature, 'writing' has been somewhat neglected, despite a lack of capability in this area being linked to poverty and social exclusion. This book is the first comprehensive and state-of-the-art review of the relationship between executive function skills and writing. It explores its role across the lifespan, addressing all groups of writers, from children and those with learning and language difficulties, to adults and elders. It considers theoretical viewpoints, assessment and methodological issues, and developmental disorders, and closes with insightful commentary chapters that draw future directions for investigating executive functions. Written by internationally recognized scholars in the field, this is a new and innovative contribution which will provide essential reading among researchers, educators, and graduate students interested in understanding the cognitive underpinnings of writing throughout the lifespan

Published in association with Special Children magazine, this practical and highly flexible resource pack is designed to offer help for all those mainstream teachers who may have children with various sorts of special educational needs in their classes. The pack is based on Special Children's `Back to Basics' series, but each section has been revised and extended to include photocopiable worksheets, checklists and practical advice for teachers in mainstream settings. Each section looks in detail at one of the key topics related to learning and behaviour problems. Each is based on a straightforward, four-stage `problem to solution' approach through which teachers can build a plan of action for looking at possible solutions to children's needs: 1. Clarifying the problem: who has the problem, and what sort of problem is it? 2. Collecting evidence: how serious is it, and what are the causes and effects? 3. Planning: what can be done, who will do it, when and how? 4. Action: converting the plan to action, monitoring and review In each chapter the discussion of planning strategies is supported by a case study example of its use in practice, together with materials for teachers to use and adapt in their own classroom contexts. Sections include: * literacy skills * maths skills * science * thinking and learning skills * dyslexia * handwriting * speech and language difficulties Published in a loose-leaf format, this pack provides invaluable source material for all classroom teachers, and will also be of help to special needs co-ordinators planning INSET work and whole-school approaches under the Code of Practice.
