Learning Disability Awareness

CPD Approved

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.

Course Description

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.
