The introduction of the National Curriculum has presented many challenges for those concerned with the education of children and young people. One of the questions has been how to guarantee access to the National Curriculum for individuals with special educational needs. This book seeks to illustrate how this could be achieved in the case of those pupils with severe learning difficulties (SLD). In doing so the book offers principles and examples of practice, aiming to be relevant to the education of all pupils with special educational needs (SEN).
