Many learning disabilities and difficulties are hidden, you may be surprised to learn that 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability. They are not always severe, levels of disability can vary. Attitudes towards individuals with learning disabilities can be outdated and unconscious bias can lead prejudice. This course will help you to see the individuals not the disability.
