This two day Understanding Communication and Managing Behaviour course is for anyone who is involved in the support of individuals who have a learning disability.
People with profound learning and multiple disabilities are some of the most complex people that they work with. They often don't communicate verbally or in a way that we readily understand. If we are to truly support them to lead valued and inclusive lives we must try to be experts in understanding them, their communication and the ways in which they interact with the world around them. This two days course is led by experts in their field. It will support you in understanding and exploring strategies which help the people you are engaging with. It will also provide you with increased confidence to understand the reasons for some of the sensory-behaviour challenges you face on a day to day basis. Knowledge and understanding of sensory integration as well as communication and behaviour will be enhanced. There will be practical experience, advice and strategies over the period of the course. Attendance at this course will give you access to the PAMIS learning hub where you will find additional resources and discussion.
**Please note: Attendance required for both sessions which are Friday 17 May and Monday 20 May 2019**. Course starts at 9.30am and finishes at 4.30pm on both dates.
