Today, there is increased emphasis on the coverage of special educational needs in initial teacher training. This comprehensive introduction begins by looking at inclusion policy and how barriers to achievement can be removed. The SEN Code of Conduct is explained and detailed guidance on Individual Education Plans (IEPs) is included.
