Communicate with Me is a resource for anyone involved in supporting children or adults with a learning disability – including residential or community support workers, play workers, advocates and teachers who work directly with people, to line managers and service managers who can facilitate change within service structures and promote good practice in their teams.

The bite-sized sections make this resource a practical and thought-provoking guide to communication methods and work practice approaches that can be successfully used to support more effective communication with people with a learning disability. It is a guide that can either be read from cover to cover or dipped into for reference and inspiration.

This practical resource includes:

• Comprehensive guidance in communicating and involving people with learning disabilities
• Filled with practical examples, case studies, examples of good practice and information that is contextualized to support implementation in settings
• Detailed quality assurance framework that supports services and practitioners to implement standards about communication and involvement
• Includes online access to supporting materials

Reviews:

The publication of this resource is timely. Services are shrinking and specialist support is contracting. People with learning disabilities need informed, committed and skillful partners in their struggle to take their rightful place in society – and this accessible, interactive and comprehensive guide will prove an invaluable support to everyone who has the privilege and the challenge of sharing their lives and work with people who have difficulties in communication.
