This Routledge Classic Edition brings together widely experienced editors and contributors to show how access to a whole school curriculum can be provided for learners with moderate to profound and multiple learning difficulties.
Along with a new appraisal of the contents from the editors, the contributors raise debates, illustrate effective teaching ideas and discuss strategies for providing a high-quality education for these pupils and a celebration of their achievements. The book also discusses the active involvement of family members and the learners themselves in these processes and considers issues surrounding empowerment of learners, professional development of the workforce and curriculum principles such as differentiation, personalisation, and engagement.
Winner of the prestigious nasen/TES Academic Book Award in 1996, Enabling Access is an essential read for students and lecturers in higher education, and for teachers, support staff, and other professionals in all educational settings in the UK and abroad catering for these learners.
