This course is aimed at all children & young people and adult services staff who work with people who have a learning disability.

Focussing on increasing staff skills and knowledge in this area we aim to explore approaches to common issues within this field. This course will build staff’s confidence and competence in addressing and responding to issues arising in a practical way, covering topics such as:
·         Physical changes
·         Sexual health & sexuality
·         Role of a parent & carers
·         Positive relationships & boundaries
·         Bodily autonomy, consent & protection from harm
·         Public & private behaviours
·         Appropriate touching and masturbation
·         Managing emotions
·         Issues relating to pornography and online safety

Within the course, legal frameworks that are relevant to this work such as the Mental Capacity Act, Safeguarding, Consent and recent case law will be considered in how they shape our practice and rights of PWLD. We will also look at resources that staff & practitioners can use to follow up this work in their workplace.
