1. Caring for People with Learning Disabilities: Caring for People with Learning Disabilities

Thanks to advances in medical technology, we are living in an era when more people with learning disabilities can now live functional lives. As more of the learning disabled are at home rather than in hospital situations or institutions, it has become necessary for a wider base of the population to be educated in assisting to care for them.

In this course our tutors will guide you through the social dimensions of learning disabilities, while examining methods of teaching, caring for and managing people with learning difficulties. The support needed to provide people with a better life from the first stage of disability until they gain some independence in daily activities, despite their disabled condition, can be expected to be in even greater demand in the future.

2. Child Development: Learn how to examine the social learning of a child

This course examines areas of communication, language, play and social learning, whilst exploring the physical, mental and emotional development of the child. Formulated to cater to the needs and requirements of those engaged, or contemplating careers in child care, nursing or social care.

It will also have great appeal to the parent who is seeking to enhance his or her awareness and knowledge of child development.

3. Behavioural Therapy: Learn about modern behavioural therapy

Andrew Salter who founded modern behavioural therapy used conceptions of excitation and inhibition as the basis for treatment of the neurotic. When excitatory forces dominate, people are action-orientated and emotionally free.

They meet life on their own terms. The neurotic, on the other hand, always suffers from an excess of inhibition. Through this course the student will learn how Behavioural Therapy employs mental and physical exercise to build and strengthen the excitatory processes, creating a new balance where they can dominate the brain functioning and overcome problematic behaviour.

4. Nutrition for Children and Adolescents: Learn how to improve the health and nutrition of children

With the exception of very young children (4-6 years old), between 40-69% of children in Britain are largely inactive, spending less than one hour a day participating in activities of moderate intensity. These findings are also consistent with a number of other recent reports concerning the increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity in children. This is a situation that is mirrored in adults and is likely to stem from the same fundamental causes.

Like many adults, British children are typically eating less than half the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. One in five (4-18 year olds) eat no fruit at all during an average week. Poor eating and poor physical activity habits in childhood may increase the risk of health problems in later in life. The diet of a child is a factor, to varying degrees, in the development of a number of diseases, either in childhood itself or during adult life, such as obesity, iron deficiency anaemia, dental caries, coronary heart disease, hypertension, osteoporosis and cancer.

There is some evidence to suggest that health traits present in childhood tend to track into adult life, including body weight, blood levels of cholesterol, other blood lipids and insulin, and blood pressure.

Improving the health and nutrition of children should remain a priority for the government, health professionals, the food industry and teachers alike. But more importantly, parents should also have an active role in providing the best nutritional quality to their children.  The course aims to show parents and practitioners how to improve the health and nutrition of children.

5. Autism Awareness: Develop your understanding of the diverse condition of autism

The Autism Awareness course aims to develop your understanding of the diverse condition of autism and gives practical suggestions when working with autistic individuals.

Autism refers to a whole range of social, language and communication problems. Severity ranges from mild and often undiagnosed to severe, where it is almost impossible for people to successfully engage in society.

The aim of this course is to provide a better awareness of the term “autism” and “autistic spectrum disorder” (ASD) and how to support individuals with autism.
