profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD)

diagnosed

A congenital condition affecting children and adults.

PMLD – PMLD is a commonly used term for profound and multiple learning difficulties, incorporating intellectual or developmental disabilities and physical disabilities. Most people will need to use a wheelchair and will have hearing and sight problems as well as non-verbal communication. See also complex communication needs (CCN) and developmental-learning disabilities.

Most people with PMLD don't use formal communication like words and symbols, although some people may use or understand some gestures. This makes communication very difficult.
