Apple for the Teacher

SEN Resources – Special Educational Needs – Teaching and learning with children who have Special Educational Needs can be extremely rewarding for both children and adults. But all too often children may lack enthusiasm and engagement due to the particular teaching style and resources being inappropriate for their own individual style of learning. It is important to ensure every child can achieve success in learning even if it has to be taught in a different way or with modified resources.
