Enabling Parenting with Support

Effective working with parents with learning disabilities

Price: £75.00
This training pack will enable managers and trainers to ensure staff have the knowledge and skills to provide parents with learning disabilities the best support available, and that these parents are equipped with the skills they need to protect their children and to give them the best possible start in life.
Author(s): Deborah Chinn

Raising children is never easy, and for those with learning difficulties things can be even harder, not because of intellectual impairments directly but due to a range of factors including poor housing, poverty, harassment, limited access to information, impoverished social networks and having to deal with complex and inflexible service systems. And yet, with the right support, people with learning difficulties can make excellent parents.

This training pack is designed to ensure that that support is there, that it is the best support available, and that parents with learning disabilities are equipped with the skills they need to protect their children and to give them the best possible start in life.

The pack will meet the training needs of a range of staff by covering the available evidence base, taking into account the perspectives of parents with learning disabilities and professionals, and by complying with current frameworks for working with families.

Using a range of effective learning techniques, it aims to directly enhance the skills of staff who work with parents with learning disabilities in a number of key areas including assessment, communication and teaching parenting skills.

This pack contains: CD-ROM containing handouts, PowerPoint slides in a ringbinder.
