Working with Individuals with Learning Disabilities

Designed for people who are looking to enter into or progress within the health and social care sector.

Around  1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability. Owing to the  fact that they are likely to find it more difficult than others to  describe their symptoms, a good knowledge of legislation and the  healthcare system, as well as an understanding of signs and symptoms of  various conditions, is essential for anyone working with individuals  with learning disabilities.
