The Complex Learning Difficulties and Disabilities Research Project: Developing Meaningful Pathways to Personalised Learning. Executive Summary
Schools Network
The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) was commissioned by the Department for Education (DfE) to research ways to improve outcomes for children and young people with the most complex educational needs and disabilities through the development of evidence-based teaching and learning strategies. The programme of research brought together a multidisciplinary team of researchers and advisors with specialisms across education, health, psychology, therapies and neuroscience. The outcome of the project is the CLDD Engagement for Learning Resource Framework to support educators of children and young people with CLDD. The key components are: (1) CLDD Briefing Packs: a series of information sheets on conditions which commonly co-exist within the profile of CLDD; these give information on effective educational strategies associated with particular disabilities; (2) The Engagement Profile and Scale: an observation and assessment resource focusing on student engagement for learning; and (3) The Inquiry Framework for Learning: a flexible educational practice framework, promoting multidisciplinary involvement. The overall response of schools to using the Engagement for Learning approach and the CLDD Engagement for Learning Resource Framework has been both positive and constructive in all three phases of the project--SEN (special educational need) development schools (12), SEN trial schools (65), mainstream schools (12) and early years settings (2).
