This book provides an excellent introduction for both new and experienced workers to person centred approaches when supporting people with a learning disability. It covers person centred values, consent to support, encouraging active participation as well as promoting wellbeing and the role of risk assessments in enabling person centred support.
This book 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 - Implement person centred approaches in health and social care
Level 3 - Promote person centred approaches in health and social care
If you are starting work with people with a learning disability and are undertaking your induction, studying for the level 2 or 3 diplomas in health and social care, or you want the right information to help your personal development, then Person centred approaches when supporting people with a learning disability is for you.
