Online Communities

Web Site Links
A collection of links to websites of online communities which have a Learning Disability/Difficulty focus. *FREE* to join - you just need an email address - and invariably the most useful source of current information from around the UK and Ireland.
  • We provide professionals in health, education and social care with a way to find their CPD. This will enable them to deliver the best possible care, education and social support to their clients. By creating a community of professionals we are encouraging sharing of specialist knowledge and expertise as well as a method of income generation for individuals and organisations. We are the only national platform for you to find providers AND for you to advertise the CPD you offer. The community is free to join, free to advertise and you will have access to our simple search system to find great CPD opportunities. Search our database of professionals or browse our conferences and short courses so you don’t have to spend time trawling the internet, looking on site after site, filtering the information and making comparisons.
  • This link takes you to a listing of all the public mailing lists concerned with education. They can be a very useful source of information on all sorts of issues connected with learning differently. For example here you'll find the SENCo forum, Multi-Sensory Impairment and Easyspeak.
  • Selective Mutism Advice and Support / A support group for teens and adults with Selective Mutism

  • This is an open network to anyone interested in health issues and learning disability. It is free but you'll need an email facility.
