We all make decisions every day, but are you aware of the process you use to make a decision? This essential practical guide for education professionals, using education focussed case studies throughout to illustrate key points, explains the mechanics of decision-making, introducing the associated language and concepts. It presents both a practical decision-making framework based in the Mental Capacity Act decision-making process, and a decision-making syllabus, from which education professionals can create their own curriculum.

Being able to make decisions is an important life-skill, which can have a positive impact on well-being. However, many children and young people with SEN will need direct teaching and guidance to develop this ability, from the earliest age. It explores the types of important decisions children and young people may need to make in relation to their education, with particular focus on choosing a new educational placement, providing practical guidance about how education professionals can support young people to make this decision. There is reference throughout the book as to the ways in which education professionals can work in partnership with parents to support and develop children and young people’s decision-making ability. Appendices provide completed decision-making frameworks and associated guidance.
