Answering challenging questions such as "Does the term SEN mean anything any more?" and "Is SEN biologically or socially determined?" this book:

* Makes sense of the controversy surrounding Special Educational Needs with clear sign posted information

* Is comprehensive in the range of Special Educational Needs it covers

* Clarifies information with case studies

'This book examines critically many of the terms used extensively by those promoting inclusive education and the needs and rights of disabled people, particularly those pupils with special educational needs....It raises many points which others might agree with but would be afraid to say so because it is `politically incorrect' in the present educational climate.' - Support for Learning
