The field of special needs education is well established, and although it continues to develop in exciting and controversial ways, involving some of education's leading thinkers, many people feel it is lacking a coherent theoretical analysis of its own. Students and practitioners, looking for some solid theory to reinforce their own study or practice, commonly have to 'borrow' from other disciplines, such as psychology and sociology, since there has been no attempt to provide a theoretical foundation for the special needs community. This book does exactly that, bringing together contributions from key names in the field from UK and beyond. The book will establish itself as an essential text for students and teachers, as well as all those involved in special needs across the social sciences.

"This book provides a comprehensive overview of how to teach younger learners in Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET). With clear guidance and offering practical strategies, Teaching 14-19 helps you understand how students learn, the theory that supports this and the role of assessment in this process. There is also an extensive focus on how to manage behavior, as this is the most frequently raised concern. The authors show that the overarching models of learning and teaching for 14-19 year olds are very different between school and PCET. The book explores these various models and in particular looks at how this understanding might help you in planning for learning. As well as appropriate models of practice relevant to this age group, further features of the book include: Practical hints, tips and suggestions for practice; Case studies to help you learn from and reflect on practice; Discussion of theoretical issues that will enable you to understand and underpin your practice; Additional reading and resource suggestions. This book is essential reading for trainee and practising tutors, teachers and lecturers in schools or colleges."--Publisher's website.
