Course Outline

This course looks at the huge importance of establishing Play skills in all children, young people and adults with PMLD and SLD, but argues that this is generally not possible because learning about Play is confined to early years. That is, neuro-typical time scales are taken as applicable to all, when in fact those with global learning disabilities (which affects all learning) will need considerably longer time. Some learners, especially those with PMLD and CLD (Complex Learning Disabilities) may well be learning to play for all of their lives, and Play (with a capital P to denote its massive importance) will therefore take on a central and permanent role in their education, irrespective of age.
The day will be a mix of power-point presentations, interspersed with video examples and both whole and small group discussions.

Course Instructor

Peter Imray is a freelance trainer, advisor and writer in the area of special educational needs with over 30 years teaching experience. His current interests centre on supporting schools to embed specifically written (not National Curriculum) curricula for learners of all ages with PMLD, SLD and ASD. Peter’s last book, written with Andrew Colley and entitled Inclusion is Dead: Long Live Inclusion, is a polemic against the dominant inclusive ideology of a common school and/or class and/or curriculum for those with SLD and PMLD. It was published by Routledge in May 2017. His new book, A Different View of Curriculum and Assessment: for learners with Profound, Complex and Severe Learning Disabilities is due to be published by Routledge sometime in 2023.
