Learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges: service design and delivery

This guideline covers services for children, young people and adults with a learning disability (or autism and a learning disability) and behaviour that challenges.

Children with special educational needs or disabilities
Get involved in the #SecretLifeofUs campaign
The Disabled Children’s Partnership has launched the #SecretLifeofUs campaign, which is raising much needed awareness of the day-to-day challenges faced by disabled children and their families. Did you know that 43% of people in Britain today don’t know anyone with a disability? Or that 77% of parents of a disabled child say doing the shopping is the hardest task in their day?

The #SecretLifeOfUs is bringing to life the realities of the challenges disabled children, young people and their families face in living a life many of us take for granted. Challenges most of us are simply unaware that they face on a daily basis, doing the most basic of tasks that many of us take for granted. Once you see into their secret lives, you’ll understand why we all need to work together for change. Sign up to pledge your support

Annual Health Check for adults with intellectual disability has brought a number of health benefits to this population. While this study did not show that the introduction of these checks had any impact on either emergency or elective admissions, there was evidence to suggest that they reduced emergency admissions due to ambulatory care sensitive conditions – conditions where effective community care and case management may help prevent the need for hospital admission
