Designing New Learning Spaces for Children with Autism and Complex Needs

Some years ago I worked with a brilliant Architect, Christopher Beaver, to create new learning spaces for children with Autism and Complex Needs.
The information I used drew on two PhD’s I had been involved with, namely those of Dr Diana Pauli and Dr Tamara Brookes.

Linked below are a series of articles that reflect those discussions, deliberations and developments. These may be helpful in the context of the current expansion of specialist provision

New Module on Educational Inclusion in Europe

This new module, resulting from the pan European Erasmus Project, examined inclusive practice for children with Complex Needs across 8 European Countries. The Project used the training materials developed as a result of the DfE funded Complex Learning Difficulties and Disabilities Research Project, (Carpenter et al , 2012/ 2015) , to promote understanding and knowledge transfer around children’s Complex Needs . The goal was that this would impact on practice and increase opportunities for Inclusion.

Written by Jo Egerton, Senior Research Fellow for the ITIDE Project , based at Leeds Beckett University (and formerly Research Officer for the CLDD Project) this new module is designed to add fresh information to the suite of Complex Needs modules . This module is designed be used introduction to inclusion in education. It can be studied alone or as a gateway to the Complex Needs modules (www.complexneeds.org.uk).
