Learning Disabilities training

Learning disabilities can take many forms, with varying impacts on an individual’s life and behaviour. Learning disability training will familiarise healthcare workers with the various types of learning disability and how these affect care practices.

As learning disabilities take many forms, staff must be prepared to think on their feet and learn to identify and manage the requirements of each person in their care.The learning disability online training and face-to-face resources listed below aim to raise awareness of the challenges facing people with learning disabilities, while highlighting their potential strengths and capacity for independence. The courses listed also comply with the learning disability awareness standard within the care certificate.

A key element of learning disability training is determining the level of care someone requires, while affording them the respect, dignity, and confidentiality owed to all patients. This ongoing process includes facilitating independent living and understanding individual care preferences, in order to promote self-confidence and freedom of choice wherever it is safe and appropriate to do so.
