There are over 65 special needs that schools can find themselves faced with.  Some, such as dyslexia will be familiar to everyone working in a school.  For others (such as Williams Syndrome) one might work a professional lifetime in schools and never come across a child with it.

Below we have an alphabetical list of special needs - a list which has kindly been supplied to us by Dave Vizard, who has published three books which give extensive details of each of these special needs.   

You can find a list of all of the Dave Vizard publications here   The three that we have used are:

  •    A revised guide to syndromes and conditions
  •   A guide to more syndromes and conditions
  •   A guide to further syndromes and conditions.

In each case if you click on the cover page of the book you will have the chance to read a sample from the book and see the contents in detail.

You can contact the publishers on 01626 366 161 or write to them atBehaviour Solutions Ltd, 15 St. Mary’s Close, Abbotskerswell, Newton Abbot, Devon, TQ12 5QF
