COURSES which help employers communicate with customers or colleagues with learning disabilities are now available in Havant.

Signs4Life workshops offer advice on how to deal with people with conditions such as Asperger’s Syndrome, dyslexia, autism and Down’s Syndrome. There is also advice on deafness and visual impairment.

Managing director Fozia Parveen said: ‘You never know when you will come into contact with a customer, a colleague or member of the public who is autistic, deaf or visually impaired.

‘We’re working with supermarkets, schools and hospitals. Each of our workshops helps you comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and encourages a can-do approach to people who may have a physical, sensory or learning disability’

Miss Parveen’s nine-year-old sister Aneesa was born hearing impaired which encouraged her to learn sign language.
