Welcome to SSAT (The Schools Network) Ltd Complex Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (CLDD) research project website.
The Department for Education identified through feedback from schools that educators needed a new teaching and learning framework to meet the needs of children and young people with Complex Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (CLDD). SSAT was commissioned to develop resources to support schools in educating these children.
Further details about the project can be found on the 'Project information' page, reached by clicking on the named button to the left. To access the three tools which make up the Engagement for learning resource framework, please click on the 'Project resources' button or the photo buttons below.
The SEN team can deliver bespoke in-school training in complex needs, as well as regional workshops that are arranged during the year. Please see the news section below for details of our current events.
