Teaching Children With Special Needs is a text for both student and practising teachers who are interested in improving the achievement and adjustment of children with special needs in the education system. The book aims to: acquaint students and teachers with the rich diversity of individual differences across the intellectual, physical, behavioural and communicative domains; provide up to date information on the policies, provisions and exemplar programmes in the support of children with special needs, that exist within the various states and territories of Australia; ¢ assist the regular class teacher with information and strategies, that might enhance both the academic and social inclusion of children with special needs into mainstream education.
