Square Peg in a Round Hole
Product Description

This practical easy-to-use guide identifies the barriers that children with a wide range of different additional needs experience in school. It provides case studies of each of the major conditions, describes the behaviour of the child involved and the process of diagnosis, concluding with practical strategies on how to help these children become successful learners.


“This book would be a useful addition to any staffroom because it provides an easy guide to special needs and useful ideas on how to ensure children with SEND can be included in the mainstream school environment.” –  Special Children

Linda Tallent

Linda Tallent was for many years an early years teacher. In this role she was involved in the early identification of children with special educational needs. She worked in collaboration with the local I CAN nursery to ensure that children with speech, language and communication needs succeeded within the school. Her knowledge of child development and early years practice enabled her to support and suggest strategies to help teachers through out the primary school to integrate children who had a range of additional needs. In recent years she has worked in Gateshead as a Primary Teaching and Learning consultant, providing advice, support and training both locally and nationally to early years practitioners, senior managers and local authority officers. She has worked with the Primary Teaching and Learning consultant for SEN and written a booklet called Curriculum Access to Literacy and Maths (CALM). This is used by teachers in Gateshead to support the inclusion into mainstream schools of children with special needs.
