Learning Disabilities

What is a learning disability?

Individuals with a learning disability may have difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks like cooking, cleaning, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life.

People with learning disabilities may have difficulty understanding information, learning new skills, communicating and living independently. It may take longer to develop new skills, understand some more complicated information and interact with

other people.

This is where Source Care can help. We know that the level of support someone may need will depend on them as an individual.

For example, someone with a mild learning disability may only need support with things like getting a job. However, someone with a severe or profound learning disability may need full­ time care and support with every aspect of their life – they may also have physical disabilities.
