In order for those you care for to get the most from their care, it is paramount that your staff are aware of learning disabilities. These disabilities can severely impact a patient’s behaviour and understanding how it’s vital to the safety of your staff, and the patient themselves. Not everybody with a learning disability is affected in the same way, so it’s important to understand the correct practices to care for them. This Learning Disability training will teach learners what a learning disability is, what can cause one, the process of one, and understand challenging behaviours.
The aim of this online Learning Disabilities training course is to increase your knowledge of learning disabilities and causes as well as the relevant legislation.
The key points covered in this course are:
- Defining learning disabilities
- Causes of learning disabilities
- Challenging behaviours
