Options Staff Training (Relationships)

We were asked by Options to deliver training about people with learning disabilities and relationships as part of their continuous development training for staff.

We talked about ‘What a relationship is’ we showed comparisons with people with learning disabilities and how what they say is not that different.

We looked at a case study of Michael and his life and the relationships he had growing up with learning disabilities.

We also split into groups and we asked people to think about a scenario from diferent points of view.

I think the people we trained got alot out of it, especially seeing what it is like from a self advocate perspective. The feedback we got was that they had learned a lot .

We now hope they have a different outlook about people with learning disabilties having a relationship
