    Syllabus

    This subject will explore social, contextual and cognitive issues to do with the development of learning difficulties with particular reference to the apparent 'failure' of otherwise normal children in mainstream schooling. The effects of sustained learning difficulties on behaviour and the consequent development of instrumental/ritual approaches to learning tasks will also be considered. In addition, the subject will examine the important role the teacher should play in mediating the learning of children experiencing learning difficulties.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Understanding of social and cognitive factors involved in promoting and sustaining learning difficulties; and
