The Inclusive Communication Course
About this course
This online course helps people improve their communication with others who have learning disabilities or communication challenges.
Course content and materials have been designed to be age-appropriate and relevant for course delegates who support older (secondary-aged) children or adults. The principles taught, however, are relevant to the understanding of communication at any age.
There are six modules in this course. Each module focuses on a different aspect of communication. In each module, you’ll identify potential difficulties and consider practical solutions that can be used to support better communication and feel more confident in your communication abilities.
From the 1st of July 2022, health and social care providers registered with CQC must ensure their staff receive training on learning disabilities and autism appropriate to their role.
The training has been developed by Speech and Language Therapists in partnership with people with learning and communication difficulties, their families and support workers.

How does the course work?
When you enrol on this course, you will be allocated a personal tutor. They will get in touch with you when you first start and they will provide encouragement and support throughout the whole course.
How long will it take?
The course usually takes 6 weeks to complete. This is based on the recommendation of at least 1 hour per week of study and task submission time, with a total learning time of approximately 6 hours. However, we understood that with shift patterns and other commitments you may take longer to complete the course. Some organisations choose to have their employee take one day out of their normal schedule to complete the course in one day.
