ASL - Deafblind curriculum guide

19th March 2010 at 00:00

A new specialist curriculum guide has been published, aimed at helping deaf, blind and multi-sensory-impaired (MSI) pupils learn how to learn.

Supported by the national deafblind charity, Sense, its author, Heather Murdoch, worked for two years with specialist staff at the MSI unit based at Birmingham's Victoria School to develop A Curriculum For Multi-Sensory- Impaired Children.

The guide argues that concepts need to be presented over and over again in ways children with MSI can understand, because they cannot usually learn incidentally or without specific support. This approach, it says, gives the flexibility necessitated by the very wide range of needs associated with MSI.

`A Curriculum For Multi-Sensory-Impaired Children' by Heather Murdoch with Rosie McMinn, Sally Gopsill, Annick McLinden and Gavin Smith can be downloaded at:
