Supporting physical disabilities
This toolkit is a quick introduction into how disabilities can present in learners and, importantly, how you as a trainer can support them.
Tips for Creating an Inclusive Learning Environment
For a variety of reasons, tutors/trainers are likely to come across learners who have chosen not to notify them about their disabilities or difficulties and learners who may not have a diagnosis or even be aware of their underlying disability.
A great benefit of this approach is that learners with additional needs will have their needs met without feeling singled out, or that they are causing inconvenience. Furthermore, what works well for learners with disabilities or additional needs will likely work well for all learners.
"To ensure we are inclusive to all learners, it is vital to establish positive relationships with learners and to provide an inclusive working environment where all learners can succeed."
