It is a vital resource for students and professionals alike.' - Professor Alan Carr. Director of Clinical Psychology, University College Dublin, Ireland

Educating Special Children is an indispensable companion for anyone requiring an overview of provision that has proved effective for children with learning disorders and disabilities.

Dr Michael Farrell guides the reader through what can be labrythine complexities of special education, providing educators with a road map to the most effective methods of provision currently being used. By concentrating on individual disabilities and disorders and not relying on the education system of any one country, Dr Farrell explores issues surrounding:

  • communication disorders and Autism and Asperger's Syndrome
  • developmental co-ordination disorders
  • reading, writing and mathematics disorders
  • disorders of conduct, anxiety and depression
  • attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • mild, moderate to severe, and profound cognitive impairment
  • sensory impairments
  • orthopaedic and motor disabilities, health impairments and traumatic brain injury.

In addition, this authoritative text provides advice and support that is relevant to educating pupils in a range of settings. The importance of multi-professional working is explored and analysed.

Based on many years of experience, and drawing on expertise from all corners of the globe, this is the definite guide to special education today.
