This course is run by Box Hill Institute for a variety of Disability Service Providers and is delivered on campus or at your Disability Service Provider's location.
Numbers and words can be confusing for people with a permanent cognitive impairment or intellectual disability. When literacy and numeracy skills are under developed, ordinary life in the community can be affected.
Together we can break down the barriers to education, training and employment and help participants to become more actively involved in their community. We make learning the alphabet and numbers fun by applying them to familiar every day activities and situations. Teaching will be based on the interests and personally relevant needs of students to encourage their active involvement in class. By the end of the course, students will be able to recognise basic time, money and measurement, and use simple words and phrases to communicate their ideas and opinions.
During their time with us, students will be supported by our friendly literacy and numeracy expert who will engage them with learning strategies that are sensitive to their specific needs.
If you wish to apply, your Disability Service Provider will refer you to the Box Hill Institute course coordinator.
