It’s Learning Disability Week, and this year Mencap is raising awareness of a big reconnection with friends and community after the major disruption caused by the Covid pandemic.
There is still a gap in awareness and understanding between those with and without learning disabilities. Mencap is dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of what life is like with a learning disability.
It is all about making sure the world hears what life is like if you have a learning disability through:
- Fighting and campaigning for a fair society
- Educate and raise awareness of learning disabilities
- Smash stigmas and end discrimination
What you can do
Do you have children with learning disabilities in your class/ school?
Join in with Mencap and share stories of what life is like living with learning disabilities. It’s a great opportunity to use your pupils’ imagination and have fun creating pieces of work that express their lives.
Help celebrate Learning Disability Week 2022 by sharing something about your life. What do you want to tell the world? What do you love? What do you want to change? What are you proud of? What are you worried about?Mencap Learning Disability Week 202
