This book will help workers that support people with a learning disability to understand the ideas of personal development and reflective practice that are fundamental to providing good support. The book explores understanding your duty and responsibilities, reflecting on your own work and agreeing your personal development plan.
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 - Introduction to personal development in health and social care or children's and young people's settings
Level 3 - Engage in personal development in health and social care or children's and young people's settings
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 you in your career, then Personal development for learning disability workers is for you.
'Easy to read. The activities and thinking points are really good.'
