The Learning Disability Awareness course aim to build on your understanding of what it means to have a learning disability and your experience in this area of work. The course will suggest lots of ideas about how you can help to support people with learning disabilities who you may work with.
The course is suitable for staff working in a variety of settings. It will be useful whether you work in a health or social care setting, in a community or an educational setting and whether you work in a paid or voluntary role. The effect of learning disabilities throughout the lifespan is considered, but there is a particular emphasis on children, adolescents, and young adults.
