Children and young people who are visibly different face
significant social and psychological challenges at school.
Educating Children with Facial Disfigurement demystifies a
difficult and delicate subject. Teachers and others working in
education can use this book to acquire a better knowledge of the
issues involved, as well as the confidence to handle sensitive
issues and foster inclusive attitudes both in and out of the
classroom. There are many causes of facial disfigurement -
birthmarks, cleft lip and palate, burns, scars and serious skin
conditions - so it is essential that all schools know about the
issues arising from visible difference. Jane Francis examines many
of these issues and demonstrates in a practical way how to deal
with: * staring, curiosity and questions, teasing, name-calling and
bullying * medical needs, special educational needs and related
issues * creating inclusive school communities * self-perception
and self-expression * career ideas, work experience and social
skills for life.With illustrative case studies, lesson ideas and
references to useful resources, this book will be of particular
relevance to teachers with responsibility for special educational
needs or pastoral care.
