Learning Disability Week 2024




This year’s theme is “Do you see me?” which is all about being seen, heard and valued.











What is Learning Disability Week?



Each year, the third week of June is Learning Disability Week.

It is when we make sure the world hears what life is like if you have a learning disability.





Each year has its own unique theme and for 2024 this is “Do you see me?”

“Do you see me?” is about challenging the barriers people with a learning disability face. We want to celebrate the things people with a learning disability bring to society.

The topics to talk about each day during Learning Disability Week are: 


  • Monday 17 June: “Do you see me?”
  • Tuesday 18 June: “Do you understand me?”
