Learning Disability Awareness

Overview

Learning disabilities are often neurological conditions. They can be lifelong disabilities that people have to live with. People may be born with learning disabilities or acquire it along the way. If you want to further your understanding of this condition, the Learning Disability Awareness course is an excellent place to start. It is an in-depth course that focuses on how learning disabilities impact people in how they process information, understand certain situations, communicate their thoughts and feelings and finally how they learn. Not everyone has the same learning disability. Each person may display a set of varied characteristics. If you wish to work in health and social care, this course will provide a wealth of information on how to help and support individuals with learning disabilities.

People with learning disabilities have their own hopes and dreams, just like everyone else. You will gain the essential tools of empathy and diplomacy to listen to these people and provide the support they need to achieve their fullest potential. Key modules will be fully explored and you will be equipped with the relevant skills and knowledge on how to work effectively with people struggling with learning disabilities. You will be able to play a pivotal role in their development and growth towards having a better future.

The course in Learning Disability Awareness features practical tips and advice on the effect of learning disabilities and how to help individuals overcome certain challenges to go onto lead fulfilling lives. This is a CPD certified course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate across the adult and health care sectors.
