A to Z of Special Needs Cover
The A to Z of Special Needs, provides teachers, early childhood professionals and others in education settings with accurate and timely information about a wide range of disabilities and special or additional needs which can exist in childhood. It focuses on disabilities and conditions that exist from birth or which present during the early to middle childhood phase. The resource includes red flags that are a pointer to critical information that educators may not already know about a particular condition or disability, or which requires careful consideration in a preschool or school environment. It features hints and suggestions for what may be apparent in a child who has not yet been diagnosed with a particular condition, and details about where one condition may overlap with another.

About the Author

Picture of Anne Vize

Anne has worked as a special educator in a variety of settings, and holds a Masters degree in Special Education. Her experiences include teaching children and young adults with intellectual, learning and physical disabilities as well as behavioural challenges which make attendance at school a challenge.

As well as teaching classroom literacy and numeracy, Anne has worked as a teacher of sport and recreation and has taught within the Professional Writing and Editing course at Chisholm Institute.

To date she describes her most challenging and inspiring teaching moment as being deciding to take a group of teenagers with varying disabilities including autism, attention deficit disorder, intellectual disabilities and behavioural issues to Sydney from Melbourne in a minibus to watch the 2000 Paralympic Games — driving and camping for the whole five day trip!

A previous recipient of a Queen's Trust scholarship award to visit New Zealand and Fijian special education settings, Anne is committed to constantly updating and extending her skills into new and diverse areas of writing and education.
