How does this service work / what's involved in this service?

  • We share information and decide which professions can best meet the needs of the person who has been referred.
  • We gather background information and carry out assessments in order to make team decisions about the appropriateness of our service for the person.
  • We carry out assessments and interventions in partnership with the person with a learning difficulty whenever possible. They are actively encouraged to be involved in planning intervention and choosing the issues they wish to address.
  • We endeavour to gain the person’s consent and agreement throughout intervention. During intervention we will assess the need to include people who are significant to the person with a learning difficulty and will include them in intervention, if appropriate.
