Taking Control of My Health : A Training Manual for Health and Social Care Staff to Deliver a Course for People with Learning Disabilities Who Have Health Conditions Paperback / softback
by Mary Codling
Taking Control of My Health will equip a wide range of facilitators with the guidance and tools required to deliver a programme for people with learning disabilities that will enable them to express emotions, network with their peers and create opportunities to promote self-understanding.
The course is designed for people who have mild to moderate learning disabilities and are able to communicate verbally, and is based around the use of the Kolb (1984) experiential learning cycle.
This enables people with learning disabilities to gain a better understanding of their health through learning from interactive and participatory sessions.
It provides the framework that will guide the facilitator by creating opportunities such as role play, active participation, exercises, games, homework and action plans, which are all forms of experiential learning.
The course is organised into six weekly sessions.
