    Hi, I'm thinking of applying for a job in a MLD special school. I'm currently working in mainstream and we have MLD children there too. I don't really know what to expect in special. What would the MLD be like? Thanks

    I know of an MLD school in the LA where I used to teach. It was known as the ‘grammar ‘ school of specials - ha ! It was highly selective and the students ( Secondary ) were very willing, malleable and responsive. I think the setting had a bit of a wake up call when it started to admit children with ASD ? but in general I think a very stress free environment ? We had children in our mainstream school with MLD alongside other complex needs / attendance issues. Said MLD provision would not entertain these v needy student - scandalous to be honest ....
