Exploring the complex issues that surround special educational needs (SEN) both in and out of the classroom, this reader-friendly text considers the impacts that these issues have upon the child, the parent, the teacher, and the school as a whole.

Fully cross-referenced and including suggestions for further reading with each entry, areas discussed include:

  • pupil rights and empowerment
  • parents and care workers 
  • curriculum and teaching
  • inclusive approaches
  • historical dimensions.

Providing an informative combination of practical, historical and legal terms and concepts,Special Educational Needs: The Key Conceptsis a highly useful resource accessible to a broad audience.

Philip Garneris Professor of Education at Nottingham Trent University. He has published widely on issues relating to SEN and EBD, including his bookThe International Handbook of Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties(2004).
