Editor's letter

SEN Magazine Editor Peter Sutcliffe.

In order to best support the education of a child with SEN, it’s important to understand how they see the world. How do they process information? In what ways does their learning profile differ from those of other children.

In a revealing article, Jennifer Nock looks at the cognitive development of children with Down Syndrome. She outlines some of the common difficulties they experience at school and provides useful strategies to help promote their learning.

Also in this issue, Cath Smith explores the role of British Sign Language in education. She explains what BSL is, who uses it and how it compares to the many different sign languages around the world.

Professor Diane Montgomery argues that teachers can identify dyslexia in Reception, and that a child’s writing ability may be more important than their reading in understanding early literacy issues.

Emma Gosling looks at how a person-centred approach can help people with autism to develop life skills.

In his regular SEN law column, Douglas Silas provides the first of a two-part examination of education, health and care plans.

You will also find articles on the Children and Families Act, rhythmic exercises, SEN overseas, post-16 education, outdoor activities, assistive technology, living with dyslexia, CReSTeD, teacher recruitment and care sector recruitment.
