About the Course

Those with learning disabilities are less likely to easily express or understand their symptoms. Due to this, it’s important that those who work with these individuals, or have regular contact with them have an understanding of the signs and symptoms of various conditions. It’s also important that they are aware of the legislation surrounding the healthcare system, to provide the best quality support.
