Teachers can reach for the manual

12th February 1999 at 00:00
A MANUAL of good practice for special educational needs will help to ensure that the recently announced extra pound;2.5 million for staff development and training will be put to good effect, the Education Minister says.

Helen Liddell believes the manual, 12,000 copies of which are being sent to education authorities and headteachers, will contribute to "truly inclusive policies".

It provides guidance on legislation and policies affecting special needs and gives examples of good practice in how agencies, including teachers and educational psychologists, should co-operate.
