Teaching in a special school

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by Fudge123, May 30, 2011.

  1. Hi
    I have just got a job in a mld school and was wondering is someone could give me an insight into how planning works so i dont look too stupid when i start.
    My class are year 5 but are mainly level 1/2 - do you teach year 5 units / topics (literacy, science etc) but differentiate and support to their level or do you teach the units to their ability ie year 1 units. Or do you just work purely to their needs without following units at all.
    Also, can anyone recommend any good books that discuss different disabilities and teaching strategies - ie ADHD, autism etc.
    Am so excited to start in September but I know I have so much to learn, I want to be as prepared as I can beforehand. I will obviously go in and chat to the staff but I dont want to appear stupid if I ask really basic questions : )
    Thanks J
