    I am curious to explore the potential of the Opening Minds curriculum for children with special educational needs, in particular those with autistic spectrum disorders.
    I wondered if anyone else had experience of developing programmes of learning within the Opening Minds curriculum for this pupil population?

    Thanks Barry – we’ll have a think and an ask around and post something up here if we find anything.

    Anyone else who knows of anything, please feel free to post as well!

    I’ve identified a few special schools that have been looking at or implementing Opening Minds – so drop me an email at and I’ll send you a list.

    Linking Opening Minds with SEN is certainly something that quite a few people have seen as valuable – so you’re not alone in being interested!
