Synopsis

All of us depend on effective communication in order to be able to live our lives to the full. For people with learning disabilities, effective communication is especially important because they often rely on the support of others to live their lives. It is therefore essential that family members, carers, support workers and health and social care practitioners are able to communicate effectively with the individuals whom they support. That way, people with learning disabilities have the best possible chance of securing the rights, inclusion, choice and independence to which they, like anyone else, are entitled. This new pack provides a wide-ranging training programme to cover the concepts and techniques which underpin and make possible effective communication with people with learning disabilities. The training programme comprises four sessions that can be delivered together as a day's training or, alternatively, as stand-alone sessions delivered over a series of team meetings or in-house training days.

The pack sets out a Total Communication approach and training participants are introduced to an extensive selection of communication techniques that can be used in addition to the spoken word and adapted according to the communication skills of the individual in question. In this way, as well as having the opportunity to develop their communication skills, training participants are given a 'taster' of a range of communication concepts and techniques that can be used to facilitate effective communication with people with learning disabilities. Interactive activities and exercises allow participants to explore the various communication techniques and to discuss and reflect upon ways of incorporating them into their work.
