Changing Provision for Pupils with Severe and Profound General Learning Disabilities in Ireland
Keywords:Education Provision, SPGLD, General Learning Difficulties, Severe and Profound General Learning Disabilities, Teachers' Attitudes
The picture emerging from this study is that teachers working with children who have severe and profound general learning disabilities have a high level of personal satisfaction with their work. This indicates that they appear to be stimulated rather than demoralised by working with children whose progress is extremely slow. On the other hand, the conditions under which many teachers are expected to work are a major source of dissatisfaction and concern.
