All children and young people do not learn in the same way. The PASS theory, planning-attention-simultaneous-successive, is an analysis tool that helps us understand similarities and differences in children’s learning, and how these are related to difficulties in reaching important developmental and learning goals. “We get new glasses to see the children with”, say teachers who have learned about the PASS processes and how they relate to the children’s learning. This makes it easier to see what lies behind the differences in a class, and to meet the various needs in ordinary education. This can reduce the need for special education.
