Learning Disabilities Week

Health Education England has supported Learning Disability Awareness Week (14-20 June).

Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs, alongside speech to enable people to communicate more effectively. All people with a learning disability should have the support they need to access dental care and this tool can be used to support communication in day- to-day practise.

Health Education England has collaborated on a short film highlighting the experience of someone with a learning disability visiting the dentist, available via YouTube.

The film features Charlotte, Senior Community Dentist and Chair of the BDA’s England Community Dental Services Committee (ECSDC), and Gary, an actor with a learning disability who is part of the MiXit theatre group.
