Special Needs in the Classroom has been written to provide a source of ideas for teacher educators who wish to improve teachers' skills in dealing with pupil diversity in mainstream schools. It is based on the growing awareness that conventional systems of categorization are inadequate for representing the diversity of special needs, and that mainstream schools will have to adapt in order to provide for all their pupils. Full advice on teacher education methods is offered, including accounts of initiatives already undertaken in various parts of the world. The book emphasizes the importance of teacher development, both pre-service and in-service. Practical guidelines are proposed, based on the UNESCO Teacher Education Resource Pack. The book also demonstrates how pupil diversity in mainstream schools can be seen as a positive influence on the life of the school.Ainscow, Mel is the author of 'Special Needs In The Classroom A Teacher Education Guide', published 2004 under ISBN 9789231039522 and ISBN 9231039520.
