Since the introduction of the National Curriculum (NC) in 1988, it was assumed that it would apply to all children irrespective of race, gender, creed or disability. A generation later, nearly all practitioners would agree that the National Curriculum clearly does very little to effectively support the learning of children with profound and severe learning difficulties. A PMLD Curriculum for the 21stCenturyoffers succinct and compelling arguments for a distinct and separate pedagogical approach to the learning needs of the most educationally challenging pupils. This book, written in accessible, common sense and non-academic language provides an easy-to-follow alternative curriculum specifically designed to enhance and enrich the learning of children with profound and multiple learning difficulties. Chapter by chapter, guidelines and support is offered in the following key areas: The Cognition Curriculum The Communication Curriculum The Care Curriculum The Physical Curriculum The Sensory Curriculum The Creative Curriculum The Community Curriculum This highly practical resource is essential reading for any educational professional, parents, school governors, teachers, teaching assistants, therapists and indeed, anyone involved with maximising the educational opportunities of those with profound learning difficulties, irrespective of age.
