Complex Learning Disabilities and Difficulties (CLDD) Briefing Sheets
These are the briefing sheets on the neurodiverse conditions – Complex Needs- the DfE funded CLDD Project, (directed by Professor Barry Carpenter), originally compiled.
These are available to download free of charge. There are three sheets in each set, for each Complex Need, (e.g. FASD, Attachment, Prematurity etc)
They are particularly valuable for Teaching Assistants, NQTs, and for Teachers encountering a particular type of Special Need for the first time. They contain essential information, some teaching ideas, and signposts for finding out further information.
These briefing sheets were originally hosted on an SSAT website which has recently been taken down, but teachers are still asking for the sheets, which is why they are being made available.
