We offer a varied programme of courses specifically for adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, involving learners in the community, encouraging self-advocacy and citizenship.
We also hold short courses for parents and carers in some schools and children’s centres to enable families to learn together. Find out about what and how your child learns and ways to get involved, whilst also improving your own confidence and skills – get in touch with your local school or children’s centre to find out what’s going on!
