Question and answer
Q: identify ways of adapting verbal communication with individuals with learning disabilities
A: Communication difficulties : Many adults with learning difficulties have a range of difficulties with communication (as many as 50% in some studies). [ These difficulties include: Comprehension – not understanding what others are saying and / or understanding more abstract language. Expression – not being able to express thoughts and feelings, or not being verbal at all. Social skills – not
understanding social norms. These difficulties may be made more difficult by a sensory issue such as hearing or visual impairment. Often individuals may have several of the above difficulties and have a global communication delay. Another aspect that is closely linked with communication is behaviour. Often a problem with communication experienced by individuals with learning difficulties leads to inappropriate or challenging behaviour. This may occur because the individual becomes frustrated at not being understood, or has difficulties understanding what others want him to do. ............. ]
