This reflective and evidence-based book will equip students as well as professionals who work with people with learning disabilities in primary, secondary and specialist healthcare settings, with the knowledge and skills they need to work effectively with people with learning disabilities. Chapters - written by leading academics and practitioners in the learning disabilities field - examine and discuss core issues, while a case-study approach ensures a solid grounding in practical skills. This practical element is further reinforced by the inclusion of service-user and practitioner 'voices', whose lived experiences make the book even more engaging, as well as a range of reflective exercises and regular opportunities for readers to self-audit their learning. Reflecting the multi-professional nature of services for people with learning disabilities, this book will help practitioners and students make a real difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities who access health and social care environments.

'This is a helpful, practical and sensitive book written in accessible style. If you are a health or social care practitioner aiming to include people with learning disabilities in your service provision, this book is a valuable new resource. It will gently challenge you to look at your own practice and show you positive ways in which to improve it' -

'The best feature of the book is the examples used to consolidate learning. These will help students integrate theory with their experiences of working with people in practice environments.'
