In the last decade teachers have consistently reported changes in the population of children with special educational needs / disabilities (SEND). The term ‘Complex Needs’ has arisen and is widely used to describe this new generation of children.
Research from various disciplines has also recorded significant shifts in the profile of children’s needs, often resulting from new causal bases e.g. prematurity, alcohol or drug abuse, medical interventions. What does this mean for the world of Education, and our Schools?
The Department for Education funded project, on children with Complex Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (CLDD) has charted the education pathways of this group of learners across a range of schools in the U.K. and internationally. With a key focus on engagement in learning, new evidence has emerged on effective educational practice which will support and guide schools and teachers, and enhance educational opportunities for this group of learners.
We are delighted to welcome Professor Carpenter back to Telford for what will be his last visit – he is retiring from the lecture circuit this Summer so this session presents a final opportunity to hear his expertise in this area. Places at this event are strictly limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
Date: Tuesday 19th June
