Understanding the Needs of Individuals with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities

16 October 2019
Understanding the Needs of Individuals with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities aims to develop an individual’s communication skills to equip them to work effectively with children and young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD). Jointly delivered by The Children’s Trust and Disability Learning, this qualification has been developed in conjunction with specialist practitioners and through consultation with a range of learning providers working with children and young people with learning disabilities. This course will enable people to:
  1. understand the meaning of profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD);
  2. recognise the impact that communication impairment has on individuals with PMLD and compare effective and non-effective communication practice;
  3. explain how sensory exercises impact on individuals with PMLD; and
  4. identify ways to overcome negative attitudes and assumptions towards people with PMLD.
On successful completion of this course, an RQF Level 2 or 3 qualification will be awarded through OCN London. To enable completion of this qualification, online follow up support will take place after this one day workshop to assist completion of a workbook.
