Diverse learners with exceptional needs require a specialized curriculum that will help them to develop socially and intellectually in a way that traditional pedagogical practice is unable to fulfill. As educational technologies and theoretical approaches to learning continue to advance, so do the opportunities for exceptional children. Special and Gifted Education: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications is an exhaustive compilation of emerging research, theoretical concepts, and real-world examples of the ways in which the education of special needs and exceptional children is evolving.
This is an invaluable and fully updated text on inclusive practice for all primary trainees and teachers and for those working towards the National Award SEN Co-ordination. It provides an equality- and child-centred approach to inclusion, combining both theory and practice while promoting critical thinking about the complex issues involved.
