This book provides a unique insight into the challenges faced by people with learning disabilities trying to access mainstream health and social services and by the professionals who are trying to provide them. The combination of professional perspectives and viewpoints of people with learning disabilities themselves creates an authoritative explanation of why this group of people face the barriers they do. The contributors critique these barriers and also offer potential solutions to overcoming them.


"This book is a very interesting collection of essays that will help any rehabilitation professional who wishes to consider the needs of patients with intellectual disability... I recommend it to libraries, the NHS, schools and universities, social services, and housing, research and charitable organizations. I also recommend it too to rehabilitation professionals, who will undoubtedly come across people with intellectual disabilities."


"This is a ground breaking book that moves the argument forward and is essential reading for those who wish to enable people with intellectual disability to take their rightful place in society." Nurse Education in Practice, October 2009
