Lock-down and social distancing can be hard, particularly for people who find it difficult to use things like WhatsApp, Zoom and Skype etc to communicate online.

Even before lockdown we knew that people with a learning disability were more socially isolated than others in society.  With the added problem of limited face to face contact it is now more important than ever to be able to support people keep in touch and talk to others.

This session will help you support people with a learning disability to get online and communicate online.

The session will cover

  • Ways to communicate online
  • Online safety
  • Supporting someone online
