  • Responsible for working with children and young people with severe learning difficulties in a mainstream class, unit or special school?

  • Seeking new ideas, drawn from the latest research and best practice in schools, to implement in your classroom or school?

  • Keen to know how government policies will affect you and your pupils now, and in the future?
