Additional Information

Our Learning Disabilities Awareness course will help health & care practitioners to better understand the issues surrounding learning disabilities, to aid delegates to reflect on and improve how they care for people with learning disabilities.

We will look at the difference between learning disability’ and ‘learning difficulty’ and explore some of the things people with learning disabilities may find difficult and why. Attendees will learn methods to support people who have learning disabilities as well as prepare for what can go wrong in the care of people with learning disabilities

The Learning Disabilities Awareness course has been designed to help anyone who works with people with a learning disability, but especially staff and volunteers in both clinical and non-clinical settings.
