This key publication about Special Educational Needs has been put together for us by national SEN expert and author Dr Rona Tutt OBE. Sympathetic to the work of school library staff in both the primary and secondary sectors, Dr Tutt outlines the recent changes to SEN legislation, provision and terminology and suggests strategies for working with this target group in this excellent and straightforward guide. It also includes two useful case studies – one of a mainstream secondary school where excellent work with Special Needs students is highlighted and another describes the work of the school library in a Special Needs Academy in Letchworth Garden City.

This book has direct relevance to anyone who works in a school library and who offers a service to this important group of pupils.

Dr Rona Tutt OBE is the former head teacher of a primary school for pupils with moderate learning difficulties and a Past President of the National Association of Head Teachers, with an expertise in special needs education.
