Course Overview

Individuals affected by learning disabilities are as diverse as those in any other sector of society and so the provision of support for this population should be person centred and as individualistic as possible.

Within this awareness raising session we will look at the condition of learning disability generally and more specifically in a workplace setting. We will discuss the cascade of legislation and the way this legislative framework both informs and supports quality care and we will look at practical strategies which will enhance in the provision of meaningful care in the workplace.
