Improving access to health services by making simple reasonable adjustments is a legal obligation. More importantly it can save lives and significantly improve people’s wellbeing.

Health Education England has commissioned NDTi and Skills for Care to develop a resource to support people working in health and social care to understand how to make reasonable adjustments to their services.

Aimed at those working in health and social care who do not regularly support people with learning disabilities or autistic people, it addresses five areas of practice, Attitude, Adjustments, Approach, Assessment and Actions. Each session can be accessed individually or as part of a suite and can be used for self-directed learning, for teams and facilitated sessions.

I have heard about The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Learning Disability and Autism Training. Is this the same?

No, this resource is different to the Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training trials and is focussed on making reasonable adjustments. Reasonable adjustments will form an element of the Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training; however, the trial will cover a much wider content.
