A big part of supporting people with disabilities and specific needs is understanding the issues facing them and their families. This internationally recognised CACHE level 1 qualification will help you understand some of the challenges facing the individuals you are working with, their families and caregivers, and how you can better support them.

Throughout this comprehensive course, you’ll explore key topics, including grief, interactions with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) families, and the distinct challenges experienced by siblings of children with SEND. You will gain an understanding of special needs, identify ways to support SEND families, and learn how to effectively assist siblings facing these issues. We also emphasize practical application, teaching you to create a shared understanding of disability and promote better communication and engagement for SEND pupils.

By the end of this course, you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by special needs and disabilities, ensuring individuals can participate and engage in your activities whilst fostering a more inclusive and compassionate society.
