  • prior learning tasks
  • questionnaires for the participant, families and service providers

Group Training Program for people with intellectual disabilities

This comprehensive training program is designed for easy implementation. It is targeted at people with intellectual disabilities and/ or communication disabilities aged 12 years and over.

It has been written for use with people with intellectual disabilities and/or communication disorders. It is written for implementation with a group of between six to sixteen people. It aims to teach participants the skills needed to communicate their feelings and be assertive when solving problems.

In the training program participants learn to solve problems the “cool way” which assists them to be assertive in a variety of situations. Participants learn that all feelings are “OK” as they help us to make decisions. It is the way that we respond to our feelings that is of paramount importance.

It is important that people with disabilities learn the skills needed to be able to solve problems so they can be as independent as possible.

  • Recognising feelings in yourself and others
  • Expressing feelings
