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 .
