Description

LSA in conjunction with Sandra McDonald, EX-PG Ltd

You’ve heard of these letters but what do they really mean? We are required to respect the values enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities but what are they, and what do they mean for my practice?

This course, suitable for anyone working with any person with a disability but particularly aimed at those working with those working with adults with incapacity, sets out the UNCRPD ‘science bit’ in easy to follow language then uses real case examples for you to study the practical application.
