NEW Going to Hospital Book
This amazing resource is now freely available. (pdf download here) to support children and young people with a learning disability or autism when planning hospital visits.
To support the book there is a free Makaton Going to Hospital – Healthcare Cards (pdf download here). You need to be logged in to the Makaton Website to access this – sign up is free.
To use this you print on both sides so that the cards have symbol and front and sign of the back and can be used as communication aids
Healthcare Prompt cards (pdf download here) Launched in #LDWeek2018 and winners of the Student Nursing Times Award this resource was the innovative idea of Eve, Emily and Alice – Student Learning Disability Nurses from Edge Hill University. And were inspired by our very own Alice Glennon!

During #LDWeek19 we launched the Learning Disability (LD) Pledge for all Healthcare workers to make in supporting patients with Learning Disabilities (pdf download here)
