This paper addresses some findings and experiences from the Juvenile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis and Education Project (2014 – 2017). Juvenile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (JNCL) is also called CLN3 disease, Spielmeyer-Vogt Syndrome and Batten Disease. JNCL is used in this paper.
Developmental patterns of JNCL in relation to principles for pedagogical interventions are discussed in this paper. It is believed that pedagogical interventions can contribute to an improved quality of life for individuals with JNCL.
