A fully revised, new edition of Person-centred Active Support self-study guide, including new video.

This book is designed to provide the learner with knowledge about what active support is, why it is important, what it looks like in practice, and some of the key facts around what is needed for success.

This book is designed for people to follow as self-study or as part of a training programme. It includes videos and exercises to promote independent thinking and learning. It is available in hard copy and digital formats and provides about 5 to 7 hours of learning, with a certificate of completion.

A copy of this guide also comes as part of the Person-centred Active Support multi-media training resource, which uses the information in this book as the script and guide for a classroom-based training programme.

This new book will be of interest for anyone working in intellectual and developmental disability support and accommodation services, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, behavioural specialists, speech and language therapists, learning disability nurses, teachers and teaching assistants, family members, day service staff and students.
