EQUALS Pre-formal PMLD Curriculum
EQUALS has published a new Curriculum for pupils with PMLD.
For pupils with a profound learning difficulty, learning is best done when the learner is placed at the centre of the Curriculum.
“Let’s focus on the things that matter”.
A Person-Centred and Holistic Curriculum for Learners with
Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties.
A Curriculum of ideas for learners with profound and multiple learning difficulties
to help teachers/TAs to:
- build routines
- facilitate change
- offer alternatives
- observe and guide
Our aim is to put the learners in control by giving them an environment that they can understand and they are allowed to keep changing in order to encourage development.
