Total Communication

 

The Purpose of the Course

Communication, at the level of linguistic diversity, when working directly with people is of utmost importance. This course aims to examine how we communicate and provide delegates with the tools to feel more able to devise strategies and resources to aid better communication. This course is for people working directly with people who have difficulties communicating for a range of reasons, including learning disability and dementia.

Benefits for Your Organisation

The delegate will be given tools to recognise what communication issues can arise and the reasons for them.
