MK Snap offers professional support to learners with a range of learning difficulties and challenges. Their learners are from Milton Keynes and the surrounding local authorities and include adults recovering from stroke or head injury, those with visual or mobility impairment, and those with learning disabilities, such as those on the autistic spectrum.
The type and extent of difficulties experienced by MK Snap learners varies greatly and this list offers a few examples but is by no means exhaustive:
- Behavioural/social – relating to others
- Communication, expressing themselves or understanding and processing what others say
- Reading and writing (e.g. dyslexia), number work or understanding information
- Concentrating (e.g. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), appropriate behaviour
