Learning Disability Awareness

Learning Disability Awareness

Do you need to do a course on learning disability awareness?

Learning disabilities, however they are acquired, are lifelong. They are neurological disabilities and as such affect how an individual understands and remembers information, how they learn and communicate.

People can be born with learning disabilities or they may acquire them later in life.

There are many differing types of learning difficulty and they can exhibit in many different ways and with many different characteristics.

Learning disability awareness: what is covered?

This course will start by giving you an overview of some of the common types and causes of learning disabilities and how they affect people.

It will touch on how a person centred approach to care will get the best results and look at how management must perform, and at the needs of the individual.

It will also discuss overcoming the stigma attached to learning disabilities and much more.

The course is one of a selection of health and social care online courses that we offer here at UK Online Training.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
