Learning disabilities, however they are acquired, are lifelong. They are neurological disabilities and
as such affect how an individual understands and remembers information, how they learn and
communicate. People can be born with learning disabilities or they may acquire them later in life.
There are many differing types of learning difficulty and they can exhibit in many different ways and
with many different characteristics.
This course will start by giving you an overview of some of the common types and causes of learning
disabilities and how they affect people. It will touch on how a person centred approach to care will
get the best results and look at how management must perform, and at the needs of the individual.
It will also discuss overcoming the stigma attached to learning disabilities and much more.
