Disability Awareness Training
Our team provides training to organisations to enable them raise awareness of disability – in particular dyslexia and dyspraxia, support their staff and adopt more inclusive practice. As healthcare practitioners trained in disability we are a unique team with expertise in understanding the demands and needs of healthcare settings.
Training can be delivered 1:1, small groups, large groups, as part of a CPD package and staff development days as well as being tailored to the needs of a specific team.
We provide training to individuals to enable you to become a more effective and efficient learner. Via Access to Work, occupational health referral, self-referral or Disabled Students Allowances, we provide online, face-to-face support for individuals to address their learning needs. These might include: lack of confidence, low self-esteem, lack of learning strategies, difficulties with time management and organisational skills. These needs are most often associated with:
- Mental health issues
- Chronic long term health conditions such as Fibromyalgia and M.E.
- A combination of these conditions
At Diverse Learners our flexible approach means we can support you through identifying the way you learn best, and at times that suit you, raising your self awareness, self-confidence and self-belief. For further details please see our page about the support we offer.
