First published in 1994. The authors of this book aim to make recent developments in psychological research accessible to teachers of pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties. The authors present their own and related research in the areas of assessment, curriculum, and teaching techniques, taking care to point out the range, relevance and limitations of findings in the context of pupils with PMLDs. As this is an area of acute training need, the book will meet a real need for a broad current perspective on good practice. The needs of pupils at primary and secondary levels are considered and case studies are used to exemplify some of the challenges and approaches discussed.
