Sensory impairment and physical disability cover a range of conditions that cause learning difficulties for children. Often, these conditions may be associated with behavioral, emotional and social difficulties. Teachers are likely to have to deal with anything from mild to severe cases, and need to be equipped with informed and practical strategies for the inclusion of children with sensory impairment and physical disability. The Effective Teachers' Guide to Sensory Impairment and Physical Disability clarifies the definitions of visual, hearing and multi-sensory impairment. The book also discusses physical disabilities, and examines medical conditions that may lead to the requirement of SEN provision, including epilepsy, Tourette syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome. Writing in an accessible style, the author looks at ways of dealing with a variety of conditions, always with practical classroom situations in mind. Highly accessible and authoritative, this book provides teachers with an invaluable source of useful information that will help them to create a truly inclusive classroom.
