BILD's learning disability awareness training explores what learning disability is and what it means for the individual.
It explores how staff can make changes to their own behaviour and communication to help them offer good support to people with learning disabilities, and examines how the public perception of people with learning disabilities can create barriers to inclusion.
Usually co-delivered by a training consultant with a learning disability, this introductory programme explores what learning disability is, and what it means for the individual.
It examines public perception of people with learning disabilities, and how this can create barriers to inclusion.
It will help participants to discover ways in which they can adapt their own communication so they can be understood by people with learning disabilities.
This is available as:
- Learning Disability Awareness – A half day course
- Introduction to Learning Disability – A one day course
The programme can be adapted to meet the specific needs of staff who are new to supporting people with learning disabilities or people in other sectors who want to offer a good service to people with learning disabilities who are their customers.
