PALMIS: Multi-sensory Sensitive Stories

I’ve just discovered this agency (part of the University) is based around the corner in Springfield. I think we need to invite someone to come and talk to us as their work clearly has relevance for Nicola, Bruno, Wendy and Daniela, if not more of you. Let me know if you are interested in me arranging this as part of MDP?

Children and adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities have a great contribution to make, if only we take time and listen to them.  PAMIS works with families to try to make sure that they have community opportunities and can enjoy a full life – by opening doors- and minds.

People with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) are amongst the most disadvantaged in society.  They have a range of complex needs, which include; profound learning disabilities, extreme physical disabilities (most are wheelchair users), sensory impairments, non-verbal communication and very complex health problems.  Family carers routinely carry out intensive 24-hour care programmes to provide support and a good quality of life for their daughter/son.
