Special Educational Needs and the Internet by Chris Abbott

Book Description

With Internet access for every school now a reality, teachers are beginning to explore the use of the Internet in the education of children with special needs. This book describes its benefits for children across the spectrum of special educational needs, from those with physical disabilities or sensory impairment to those with learning or social difficulties. With contributions from leading practitioners in the field, this book addresses the huge range of possibilities the Internet and associated technology offer for these pupils. Combining current theory and debate with practical guidance and inspiring case studies, this book considers: * how the Internet can be used to gather and publish information * how to communicate effectively through technology * policy and management issues for schools * the continuing challenges for access and inclusion. This book will be of interest to all teachers involved in special education needs, in both mainstream and special schools.
