Thematic Units (PMLD)

PMLD Sensory Thematic Units

Practical resources to support developing a sensory curriculum for learners (aged 3-19)

We have developed these thematic units to support you in delivering a vibrant and motivating curriculum for learners aged 3–19 with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). These units are aligned with the Northern Ireland Curriculum.

You can use them to enhance the learning experiences of this unique group of learners and deliver all aspects of the curriculum at a level appropriate to your learners' cognitive ability.

To help your learners to make relevant connections, we have integrated the primary and post-primary Areas of Learning into these units. The units help embed information technology, along with communication and assistive technologies, to enrich your learners' experiences.
