Abstract

People with learning disabilities in Scotland and across the UK as a whole have been the target of considerable legislative and policy change over the last five years. A key theme relates to the inclusion of people with learning disabilities in the community - in education, training and employment and in relation to accessing health, housing and leisure services. As a result of these changes, people with learning disabilities, their families, service providers, policy makers and other professionals working alongside them have to negotiate their way through a complex array of initiatives, regulations and services. This book acknowledges and addresses this complexity by mapping and critically reviewing relevant policy developments, particularly in Scotland and across the UK as a whole. Drawing on the available research evidence, the book adopts a life cycle approach, tracing the journey taken by young adults with learning disabilities from leaving school and making the transition to adulthood and beyond.
