Caring for People with Learning Disabilities

Overview

About the Level 4 Caring for People with Learning Disabilities Certificate

Learning difficulties come in many forms. Some people who are affected by learning difficulties only experience mild impairments, whereas others require constant support. This Level 4 home learning qualification aims to educate individuals about the best ways to help and understand people with a range of different learning difficulties.

The online course begins by introducing the common causes behind learning impairments and analysing the social impact of these difficulties.

Altogether there are six engaging modules for participants to complete.
