SEN suffering and stirring the TA debate
Research on TAs conducted by the University of London's Institute of Education, reported in last week's TESpro, are drawn from one study, not two as suggested in the article. Findings mentioned in the article are taken from our five-year, government-funded Deployment and Impact of Support Staff (DISS) project and are covered in our book Reassessing the Impact of Teaching Assistants.
