Course content

This course has been developed by paediatric disability experts at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

After completing the course you should be able to:

  • Understand the nature and aetiology of intellectual developmental disabilities and relate this to clinical practice.
  • Assess and manage children and young people with intellectual developmental disabilities.
  • Contribute to service development and present a case for this using evidence-based methodology.
  • Make informed judgements within this area of Neurodisability, knowing when to ask for help and when to refer on.
  • Provide effective advice to education.
  • Critically evaluate local health services relating to children and young people with intellectual developmental disabilities.

You can apply and start the course any time throughout the year.

The course is self-paced. As a guide, a minimum of four hours study time per week should help you to complete the course in approximately four months. We are flexible with the timeframe as there is no deadline for completion.
