(PDF) A curriculum for multi-sensory-impaired children
Authored by Dr Heather Murdoch and colleagues from the MSI unit at Victoria School, Birmingham, it is a formalised document based on many years of experience in developing curriculum approaches for children who are deafblind and multi-sensory impaired.
The curriculum addresses the particular learning needs of pupils with MSI who are working at P levels 1-8, in order to give them the awareness, experience, understanding and learning skills they need to access National Curriculum programmes of study successfully. It deals with the issue of pupil progression in a clear and practical way.

- Social relationship and emotional development
- Conceptual development
- Sensory responses
- Understanding time and place
