The international trend towards teaching these children in mainstream schools (as opposed to Special Schools) is being implemented in Ireland over the past ten years. The book describes how the entire process works, from identifying the initial signs of a learning difficulty through the assessment process and on to the formulation of the all-important ‘Individual Education Plan’.
