How have you found the changes brought about by the new SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 years (2014)?

This is a useful update to the changes that are necessary following the new SEND Code of Practice. Tutt and Williams set out the book in a way that makes logical sense to those with experience wanting to use it as a resource to dip into but also for newcomers to the world of SEN who will still need to know what is new and what is not and the reason behind the changes. The overviews, keypoints and case studies in each chapter focus the reader and provide valuable illustrations to the theory. The questions for reflection will be very useful to use in seminars where certain sections of the new Code will be unpicked.

The SEND Code of Practice 0-25 Years: Policy, Provision and Practice provides a useful update with regards to significant Policy reform and subsequent changes to support and provision for children and young people with diverse and additional learning needs.

This will be a particularly useful text for beginning teachers and undergraduate students with an interest in learning more about the potential complexities of responsibilities, systems and support for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
