Working with Hannah : A Special Girl in a Mainstream School Paperback
by Chris Glass, Liz Wise
Working with Hannah is a unique and detailed snapshot of the first years of schooling for a child with Down's Syndrome and severe mobility and communication problems.
Written by two classroom assistants, who supported Hannah during her two and a half years in a mainstream infant school, this book shows how the right level of support can make inclusion a success not only for the child and family but also for the school itself.
This practical guide describes the 'hands on' approach of Hannah's day-to-day management in a busy school.
Topics covered include: *finding a school *how the school prepares *adapting the curriculum *recognising the importance of friendship *incorporating therapies into the school day *additional aspects of personal and, physical care *setting up communication systems.
There are key points at the end of chapters, which highlight the salient aspects and offer practical advice.
