Event description

Description

Diverse Learners provide Disability Support and Training for the healthcare sector and healthcare education. Diverse Learners was set up by Kerry Pace in 2012 in response to research she had undertaken into dyslexia screening at entry and the benefits of embedding study skills in introductory modules on undergraduate healthcare courses. Kerry provides training to organisations to enable them:

  • To raise awareness of disability, in particular dyslexia and dyspraxia.
  • To support their staff.
  • To adopt more inclusive practice.

Kerry’s team of healthcare practitioners are trained in disability and offer expertise in understanding the demands and needs of healthcare settings.
