Research has found that any one class might contain two to six children with profound social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Without effective intervention and response, this can have a profound impact on the progress of these children, as well as the delivery of the curriculum to all pupils. Roy Howarth uses his extensive experience and expertise in this field to present practical solutions for supporting pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties, as well as alleviating pressures on whole-class teaching and management.
Suitable for all mainstream and specialist teachers, 100 Ideas for Primary Teachers- Supporting Pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties considers techniques for observation, intervention and differentiation, as well as preventing and dealing with significant difficulties. This fully updated edition will help teachers ensure all pupils can participate fully in lessons, learn more constructively and make better progress.
