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

Following publication of the Warnock Report (1978), the Government introduced its policy of inclusion, which has not only become more controversial in its effectiveness but it has also meant that teachers have become increasingly more aware of having such children within a main-stream class. "The disabilities that may create learning and behaviour problems for so many children are often misunderstood so that parents who are charged with the responsibility for educating these children may not be efficacious in delivering that education. This book offers succinct and clear advice and points the reader to further resources that will help this most important and vulnerable group of children in our schools." Dr Steve Chinn Author, Lecturer, Founder and Retired Principal, Mark College. "This book is a rare find for the busy teacher in primary and secondary schools now having to deal with children with special educational needs; parents who want to understand the nature of learning difficulties that their children might be experiencing; and those working in Education that need to have an overview of learning problems. It is well written by its authors, Martin and Mary Ann Phillips, who have wide experience of the field of special educational needs and, in particular, the various difficulties associated with them. I have no problem with highly recommending this very readable guide and the attendant material to which it refers." Prof. Ray Page FCollP CEO & Registrar, College of Teachers Former Principal Assistant Director of Education, Bromley LEA.
