Having a learning difficulty is a lifelong challenge. However, with appropriate support and intervention, people can achieve success in school, at work, in relationships and in the community.
The aim of personalisation is to enable people to be more in control of the services or packages of support they receive. Every person who receives support, whether funded through Social Services or by themselves, should have choice and control over the shape and direction of that support to promote independence, opportunity and inclusion.
Carers of people with learning disabilities are often unique amongst Carers. Many will experience a lifetime of caring for a son, daughter or sibling with learning disabilities but are often overlooked when it comes to providing support for them to carry out their vitally important caring duties.
Since 1st September 2014 changes have been taking place for children with statements of special educational needs and young people with Learning Difficulty Assessments. These children and young people will be going through a process referred to as “Transition” which involves changing from their statements and LDAs to EHC plans within the new legal framework under the Children and Families Act 2014. Completing the transition process is a duty on the Local Authority (“LA”) where the child or young person lives. The LA must have completed this process for children with statements by 1st April 2018.
