Partnership Working to Support Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

In order to achieve the best outcomes for all children and young people, schools must work in partnership with students, parents, other professionals and the wider community. In this changing landscape of education, the notion of the traditional school no longer exists. Partnership Working to Support Special Educational Needs & Disabilities looks at what is possible in this exciting new world, and how some teachers are putting into practice the best principles of multi-agency working.

Supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in this context is more vital than ever, as more children are being diagnosed with additional needs, and those working with children are aware of the need to ensure every individual is given the maximum opportunity to develop to their full potential.

This book examines how partnership working affects those children with SEND by considering:

  • the diversity of additional needs;
  • specialist schools;
  • partnership working with special schools;
  • partnership working with groups of schools;
  • schools and other services working together;
  • children's centers;
  • a wide range of other services for children, young people and families.

Filled with case studies of best practice from real schools, this book is a must-have for those looking at how to work together to achieve positive outcomes for all.
