Learning Disability Awareness

We often use the term Learning Disability and more recently have begun to ise the term Intellectual Disability, but what does it actually mean?

 

This lively 1/2-day course seeks to define what we mean by the terminology and its implications for those whose disability falls within the wide spectrum of what we would consider a 'learning' or 'intellectual disability'.  It examines the history and evolution of service provision with a focus on current practices, legislation and emphasises the rights of people with disabilities.

 

It acknowledges how far we have come but also looks to the future and encourages participants to consider how they can contribute to promoting the rights, inclusion and independence of the people they work with and/or support.

 

Delivered using a variety of means - videos, powerpoint presentations, discussions and groupwork, this course is suitable for heallth and social care support staff, supervisors, families and carers.

 

The course is delivered by an experience professional with substantial experience of working in the field.
