The Know Your Body series aims to empower people to check their own breasts and testicles. It includes:
- Accessible breast and testicular cancer information packs
- Self-checking cards
- Breast and testicular cancer symptom guides
- Self-checking social stories
- Information on what to expect if you notice a change
People with a learning disability can face several barriers to self-checking in their regular body-care routine.
These include being able to use health information effectively because of health literacy challenges.
The Know Your Body series has been designed particularly for people with a learning disability.
Ansar Projects is part of the Thera Trust of companies working to support people with learning disabilities.
