Learning Disabilities 

Supporting Individuals with Learning Disabilities

Our Philosophy

At Salutem Care and Education, we believe that every individual, regardless of their challenges, deserves the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. Our approach to supporting those with learning disabilities is rooted in this belief, ensuring we offer tailored care and education that meets the unique needs of every person we serve.


Holistic Support

Understanding that learning disabilities often come with associated challenges – be it emotional, social, or physical which is why we offer a holistic approach to our support. Our dedicated teams work not just on academic or skill-based learning, but also on emotional well-being, social skills, and physical health.

Customised Learning Pathways in Education

Recognising that learning is a deeply personal journey, we do away with the one-size-fits-all paradigm. Instead, we focus on creating individualised learning pathways that leverage each person’s strengths while addressing their areas of challenge. This approach ensures that everyone progresses at a pace and in a manner that’s right for them.

Enriching Environments

From our state-of-the-art schools to our supportive living environments, every space at Salutem is designed with the needs of those with learning disabilities in mind. Safe, inclusive, and equipped with tailored resources, these environments enable growth, independence, and confidence.

Skilled and Compassionate Team

At the heart of our services is our team – a passionate group of educators, caregivers, and professionals trained specifically in the nuances of learning disabilities. Their expertise ensures that every individual receives the best possible support, while their compassion guarantees a nurturing and empathetic environment. We encourage all our staff to participate in Mandatory Oliver McGowen Training so that they can understand those we support with learning disabilities better.

Ongoing Support and Community Integration

We don’t just focus on the now. Our person-centred plans offer ongoing support, ensuring that those with learning disabilities are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need for the future. Furthermore, we champion community integration, ensuring everyone we support has the opportunity to be an active and valued member of society.

At Salutem Care and Education, our commitment to those with learning disabilities is unwavering. Through our comprehensive range of services, resources, and expertise, we are here to ensure that every individual can lead a fulfilling, enriched, and empowered life.

It changed his whole life because it is a small home with very caring people looking after him, staff now exactly how to support him, and it is done with warmth, care and love and how much he had improved in every possible way, his life has been transformed, he has learnt to mix with other people and now has friends."


“When I was looking for a new home for [my sister], I knew immediately when I walked through the door of New Ridley that is was exactly the right place for her. Everyone was so positive and welcoming. I am so grateful for all the exceptional care and support given to her by all the lovely staff. They are all so skilled. I always had every confidence in every aspect of her care, and she was very happy there."
