    The Profound Impact of Grief – An Introduction to Grief and Children with PMLD

    Grief is inclusive - but is grief support inclusive? Are the emotional needs of all children being met? All humans experience grief, regardless of their age or abilities. Sadly, the needs of bereaved and grieving children with SEND are often overlooked and when children have limited verbal communication skills this tends to result in their grief being totally neglected. This course looks at: what grief is (it’s about much more than death), how to identify grief in children with PMLD, how these children express their grief and crucially how we can support bereaved and grieving children with PMLD.
