This latest book in the BILD Good Support series explores the impact on a person and their family of having a label of learning disability. It explains the possible causes of learning disability and the history of support for people with learning disabilities.
Like all the books in this series, it puts the person with a learning disability at the centre of the support you give. It uses real life stories, activities and thinking points to cover all of the learning outcomes and is full of practical examples of how to apply the ideas to the support that you provide.
The book is designed to support the Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Health and Social Care (learning disability pathway) and the Common Induction Standards and in particular:
Level 2 - Understanding the concept of learning disability
If you work with people with a learning disability and are studying for a health and social care qualification, or you want the right information to help your personal development, then An introduction to supporting people with a learning disability is for you.
