Mencap's vision for an effective education for pupils with SLD/ PMLD

Dr Penny Lacey has been awarded some funding from Mencap to help them develop their vision for the education of children with learning disabilities for the foreseeable future. Her research will focus on pupils with severe and profound learning disabilities (SLD/ PMLD) as there is much less research evidence about that group than about children with mild and moderate learning disabilities, most of whom are educated in inclusive settings in mainstream schools.
