Teachers in both special and mainstream schools have to be confident in their abilities to implement inclusion effectively, in order for the child to have any chance of a successful inclusive school career. This book demonstrates how mainstream and special schools can work together in preparing the special school child to succeed in a mainstream environment. It also shows how to prepare existing mainstream pupils and other members of staff involved in or affected by the inclusion process. The author provides photocopiable forms for evaluating pupils' academic and social process and advice on how physical resources, such as sensory rooms, can enhance the learning opportunities of all pupils. She offers jargon-free communication strategies for effective interaction with the child, which is also considered within the framework of the whole-school policy. The book also presents sample lesson plans, resource ideas and plans for daily record keeping for use across the curriculum subjects; and suggestions for ways in which special and mainstream schools can work together to enhance the whole curriculum. Any teacher in a mainstream or special school who is concerned about making inclusion really work for their pupils will find this book an invaluable companion.

This book considers current issues in the development of policies to promote inclusive education for pupils with special educational needs. By examining issues from the perspective of individual pupils, schools, and local education authorities, it raises critical commentary on the ways forward for a co-ordinated approach to inclusion. Strategies to Promote Inclusive Practice draws upon the experience and expertise of teachers, policy makers, and researchers, who explore the many factors which need to be addressed in the development of a more inclusive education system. The authors explore the link between theoretical perspectives and the production of policy, as well as the potential for translating this into good classroom practice. They provide examples of approaches which have proved successful in enabling pupils to become better equipped to address the needs of a wide range of pupils. In considering the impact of recent policy, legislation, and research, the authors suggest that several models of inclusion may be necessary in order to become an inclusive education system. This book will be of interest to students, teachers, policy makers, and researchers, who are concerned to advance the debate on inclusion towards a more pragmatic approach to providing for all pupils with special needs. It is a companion text to Promoting Inclusive Practice edited by Christine Tilstone, Lani Florian and Richard Rose (RoutledgeFalmer, 1998), which was the joint winner of the 1999 TES/NASEN Academic Book Award.
