Unit 12: Supporting Individuals with Additional Needs

Level: 3

Unit type: Internal

Guided learning hours: 60

Unit in brief

Learners explore the role of health and social care services in providing care and support to individuals with additional needs.

Unit introduction

While working in health and social care, you may care for a full range of individuals who have additional needs. Individuals with these additional needs have a right to receive the best quality care and support. This unit aims to give you specialist knowledge that can be crucial to ensuring that those with additional needs meet their full potential.

As a practitioner in a health or social care environment, you will be responsible for ensuring that everyone in your care has the same opportunities. Additional needs are essentially about each person’s uniqueness and wellbeing rather than about discrimination, and it will be your job to ensure that you treat people equally, respect diversity and foster an environment with high expectations. In this unit, you will explore the range of additional needs that are faced by individuals, considering the effects these needs have on their wellbeing, rights and access.

Individuals with additional needs may need provision from a number of services, meaning that organisations work in partnership to assess needs and provide support. You will investigate the support provided to explain how it is possible to overcome the challenges that these needs pose to daily living. Finally, you will investigate the legislation, frameworks and policies that govern work in the health and social care sector, and support the rights of individuals with additional needs.

This unit will help you progress to a range of careers with children and adults with additional needs and also to higher education to study nursing, social work and therapist careers.
