A comprehensive and practical resource for speech and language therapists and students, this title covers all aspects of working with this client group, including: an introduction to learning disability; assessment of the client and their environment; profound and multiple disability; challenging behaviour; augmentative and alternative communication social skills; dysphagia; and staff training and working in a community learning-disability team. Each section gives the reader a theoretical background to the subject under discussion, practical suggestions and formats for assessment, and a guide to intervention as well as a clear worked example. In addition, the author addresses staff training, group therapy, accessing the criminal justice system and working within a multidisciplinary team. A useful inclusion is a revised version of The Personal Communication Plan.
