"This highly practical resource provides schools for children with severe and complex learning disabilities with a framework to support their well-being and mental health. Each chapter provides material, ideas and activities for special school teachers with sections that can be used and adapted for training workshops with the school staff. This book will ensure that teachers of these children develop a greater understanding of their emotional needs and follow two central strategies: to prioritise and support the emotional wellbeing of the whole class and of individual children, recognising that emotional wellbeing is integral to learning and enjoyment at school"-- Provided by publisher.
