describe steps that can be taken to promote positive attitudes towards individuals with learning disabilities and there family carers
Social exclusion has been a major factor in many learning disabled people living a life of limited opportunity. Previously, many learning disabled people were removed from their communities and institutionalised. [ However, in developed countries there has been a move in recent years to take positive steps and change direction towards social inclusion for people with learning disabilities. This
has involved steps such as care in the community and action toward greater integration amongst mainstream society. The ethos behind this progression is to provide assistance and education for learning disabled people to gather the skills to live a less marginalised and more independent life within society, as well as learn about citizenship. For children, social inclusion also means finding ways for the child to integrate into mainstream state schools if the support is available.in the last decade the Government has taken steps to encourage social inclusion and self-centred planning, as well as modernising day services to help encourage independent living and social skills for forming meaningful relationships with a different groups of peopleFor children with learning disabilities, the Learning and Skills Council has moved toward equality in accessing education. If a parent wishes for their child to attend a mainstream state school, then the local authority and the school must evaluate the child?s needs and make provisions where possible. ]

Weegy: Use the school environment to promote positive attitudes to disability. [ Ensure that disability is represented in posters, collages, displays and learning materials. · Celebrate and highlight key relevant events such as the Paralympics, Deaf Awareness Week and Learning Disability Week. · Use Citizenship Education to examine what life is like for people with disabilities. These lessons include input from people with disabilities/agencies representing people with disabilities in order to teach pupils more about the problems confronting, and achievements of, people with disabilities. · An audit will be undertaken to identify what opportunities already exist within the curriculum to discuss matters to do with disability. · All staff will have a twilight training session about the Disability Equality Scheme/ promoting awareness about issues to do with disability. · When funding allows, additional resources supportive of disability equality will be purchased for the library/PSHE/Citizenship Education. ]
