Thanks to advances in medical technology, we are living in an era when more people with learning disabilities can now live functional lives. As more of the learning disabled are at home rather than in hospital situations or institutions, it has become necessary for a wider base of the population to be educated in assisting to care for them.
In this course our tutors will guide you through the social dimensions of learning disabilities, while examining methods of teaching, caring for and managing people with learning difficulties. The support needed to provide people with a better life from the first stage of disability until they gain some independence in daily activities, despite their disabled condition, can be expected to be in even greater demand in the future.
