AbstractThis article addresses the issue of supporting lifelong learning for individuals with profound and multiple learning difficulties. Lifelong learning is usually a more mainstream concept and is rarely applied to this marginalized group for whom learning per se is such a challenge. The paper debates whether the concept is a useful one, and what lifelong learning might actually look like for someone with with a profound intellectual impairment.
