2.The Essential Guide to Special Education In Ireland

The Essential Guide to Special Education in Ireland by CJ Fallon is the first book to provide an overview of Special Education in Ireland. It is written for parents and teachers who are involved with children who have learning difficulties, across the spectrum from dyslexia to autism. 
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’. It describes each special education condition in detail, and provides parents, teachers and principals with all the information and help they need to ensure they are doing all they can to provide every child with access to appropriate education.
