Working with Individuals with Learning Disabilities

A person with learning disabilities will have reduced intellectual ability. They may have trouble learning in a traditional class setting or find daily things like household tasks and socialising harder than others.

Course Description

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 understand 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.

1 - Understanding the Context of Supporting Individuals with Learning Disabilities 
2 - Principles of Safeguarding and Protection in Health and Social Care 
3 - Introduction to Personalisation in Social Care 
4 - Principles of Positive Risk-Taking for Individuals with Disabilities
