Compare and contrast two concepts relating to special educational needs teaching and learning.

You should begin to move beyond mere description by thinking deeply about the
items being compared, identifying relationships between them and deciding which
qualities are most significant. This process involves evaluating, analysing and
synthesising your findings and presenting them in a meaningful, interesting and
logical way. It is up to you to argue why any similarities and differences matter.
Some pairs of concepts, considered on the module, that we think might work well
together (i.e. there will be elements to compare and contrast) are:
• Labelling/intervention
