pupil's social development?

Asperger Syndrome - with specific reference to Post-16,
English?

I am doing a research project on whether there is enough
support for children with dyslexia in mainstream primary

I am working in a special school but I need to find in depth
information on inclusion in starter activities, inclusion in the
classroom, inclusion in D&T.
Evaluation / examples of use
www.ttrb.ac.uk
An independent evaluation by ‘HOST Policy Research’ in June
2006 produced the following examples of impact:
–Many users felt that the thematic sites were a time saver for hardpressed ITT staff in providers, with one noting:
‘ … (its about) having the information all in one place. You could
take days doing random searches. On Multiverse, it’s usually there or
there are links to the information you want. It saves an immense
amount of time.’
–A number of providers had started to build in some form of practical
introductory sessions to trainees to provide them with:
‘…a ready resource to use while they were in schools and might be
feeling a bit isolated’. A common outcome from these introductions
was trainees registered on the sites.
–Mentors have been made aware of the website and they have started
to make use of it to further their Professional Development.
‘Using the site has upped the knowledge base of mentors who in
turn have raised interest in the website within their departments.
This will all have a positive effect on the trainees’ experiences in
schools.’
