Abstract

This handbook offers an updated, accessible overview of the roles and responsibilities faced by learning support assistants (LSAs) and teaching assistants in mainstream schools. The conversational style of advice and guidance is particularly useful for those hoping to become an LSA or who are new to the role. The author, an educational psychologist, contextualises provision for SEN today with an exploration of the meaning of ‘inclusion’, an introduction to the Code of Practice, IEPs and Statements. This is followed by a realistic guide to aspects of the job and expectations that the LSA is likely to face, offering practical tips and suggestions to enable the effective use of support in the classroom.
