Planning for
individual needs
Mathew with two carers

In the classroom featured in this section children have CLDD and PMLD. Matthew, for example, has complex medical needs and a multi-sensory impairment. He cannot control his own temperature and requires constant supervision and individual intervention to enable him to access his environment in any way.

Pupils in the class operate at levels P1-P4 which means that teaching is on an individual basis, rather than for the whole class.

Planning for a class

  • Managing the learning environment
  • Working with other professionals

In these audio clips the teacher, Jo, explains how she plans for her class.

Jo uses the assessment tool 'Routes for Learning' to help her plan for progress for her class.
