Quick Overview

What it says on the back of the book

People treat children as though there is something wrong with them because they are ignorant and small. They say "I'm so worried about Alexander's development. I mean, he has got no grasp of bonded numbers, no concept of phonics, his hand to eye co-ordination is all over the place. Goodness knows what he's going to be like when he's born." - Jeremy Hardy

Despite the intended humour in this quote from "Grumpy Old Men" by Stuart Prebble, it is a fact that a great many mothers are aware that their child has difficulties long before the professionals make a diagnosis.

This book is intended to be a serious attempt at explaining in lay terms, for the non-specialist teacher and parent alike, the ten most common special educational needs encountered in main-stream classes
