I am an English teacher in a small independent school and my new year 9 group will be a part of the new GCSE Curriculum. My entire class which consists of approx 6 students are all special needs. One of the students has an assistant as he has selective mutism. Another student has severe ADHD and the students parent will be in all lessons. This is something new to me and I am a little concerned as I have not taught with a parent in class before, nor have I had an all special needs group. The parent is also very nervous and I could do with some advice on this whole issue.
