Course Description

No longer offered

In this course, students learn how knowledge and understanding of developmental psychology inform professional practice in schools for pupils with severe and profound learning disabilities. The course examines how children with severe developmental disabilities come to understand their world and how teachers and other school-based professionals devise programmes to meet children's very individual needs. The course is based at Riverside School (formerly called Rectory Paddock School), a State school for young pupils with severe learning disabilities. Each week, students spend time with pupils and professionals in classrooms. This practical focus is followed by a class that treats such topics as Severe and Profound Learning Disabilities; the Autistic Spectrum; Language and Communication, Children with Complex Health Needs; Challenging Behaviour; Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Practice; and Integration. Students have opportunities to meet with parents and families of young people with disabilities.
