This topic examines research in the area of curriculum development for individuals with developmental disabilities. The topic presents literature with a focus on outcomes-based curriculum development from an ecological perspective and how this influences educational programming. Students will demonstrate the process of designing an individualised functional curriculum based on a person-centred, ecological assessment of current and future environments using a variety of assessment tools. Through this process students develop and prioritise learning objectives and demonstrate an understanding of how functional skills can be embedded within the general curriculum to promote inclusive practice. Students will develop a skill sequence within a selected functional curricular domain to demonstrate understanding of how individual skills are part of the scope and sequence of curriculum design as a whole.
The aim of this topic is to develop an understanding of:
The process of augmented curriculum design
Outcomes based personalised educational programming and planning.
