This fully revised and updated edition of Learning Disability Today provides an accessible and thought-provoking introduction to some of the key issues in the lives of people with learning disabilities and the practice of those who support them. Learning Disability Today was first published in 2007 to meet the need for a handbook which, while well-grounded in latest research and practice, was accessible for staff occupying many roles, such as support workers and managers in learning disability service settings, community learning disability teams and professionals who may find themselves supporting a person with an intellectual disability from time to time, families and voluntary supporters, as well as students of learning disability/intellectual disability. It has continued to be a highly successful title, and has been published in three previous editions over the past nine years. This new, fourth edition is a complete revision, aiming to address key knowledge requirements, challenges and concerns for people working in the field and provide opportunities for reflection and continuing professional development. The content is illustrated throughout by case studies to help the reader explore how best to address issues in practice.
