Nurturing Touch for those with PMLD

with Julia Barnes

This session considers the importance of nurturing touch, particularly to people with PMLD who may be prioritising it as a channel to communicate and interact with the world. The session considers how humans are wired for social touch and the ability it has to form bonds and express oneself. People with PMLD experience high levels of touch throughout their lives and attendees will be able to consider how to make these touch encounters personalised, communicative and nurturing within the context of the legal frameworks schools operate within in the UK.

Online CPD Sessions

“Love these courses, it is like having a university lecture/tutorial”

“I love listening to the evidence based information”

“All the information was presented simply and efficiently. It was interesting and the time passed very quickly. An excellent training session”

Rodney House School – Manchester

We feel the online training delivered by EQUALS have been WONDERFUL.  The relevance and depth of the sessions has been fantastic, Peter is a very knowledgeable man. Having training delivered online has enabled all our teachers to attend and have discussions after the event rather than one teacher attending and disseminating which can water down the content.
Thank you so much and keep them coming!

“For those with a profound learning difficulty (PMLD), learning is best done when the learner is placed in the centre of the curriculum”.
