About the series
The Differentiating for Inclusion: Target Ladders series is designed to narrow the gap between children with SEN and their peers. Books in this series offer teachers helpful guidance in identifying both what children can already do and what specific targets they need support in achieving. The positive approach of structured small-steps targets, together with activities for teaching these, will ensure that children with SEN make accelerated progress. The books are all written by experienced practitioners.
Series editor Kate Ruttle is a leading practitioner for inclusion and a special needs coordinator. She is the author of numerous books including Target Ladders: Dyslexia in this series.
