Learning Disability Week 2024 – June 17 to June 23

Learning Disability Week takes place annually during the third week of June which is from Monday 17 June to Sunday 23 June this year.

This week is an opportunity to educate the world on what life is like for people living with Learning Disabilities.

This year’s theme is “Do you see me?” which is all about being seen, heard and valued. It is also about challenging the barriers people with a learning disability face.

There are suggested topics that can be discussed each day and those are listed below:

  • Monday 17 June: “Do you see me?”
  • Tuesday 18 June: “Do you understand me?”
  • Wednesday 19 June: “Will you work with me?”
  • Thursday 20 June: “Do you hear me?”
  • Friday 21 June: “Do you include me?”
  • Saturday 22 June: “Will you support me?”
