Who is this service for?
Referrals are accepted for adults who meet the following criteria:
- Have a significant impairment of intellectual functioning (i.e. an IQ under 70)
- Need significant assistance with day-to-day living skills.
- Have a recognised learning disability acquired before the age of 18
- Who require support with specialist health care needs.
The following professionals are within our team:
- Art Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech and Language Therapy.
We support people with a learning disability to access mainstream (often called primary or secondary) health services. If someone requires specialist interventions specific to their learning disability then they will be given an initial assessment and this may lead to further input from the team relating to the following areas:
- Behaviour which challenges services
- Mental health
- Forensic needs
- Complex health needs.
How do I access this service?
Anyone can make a referral to their local Community Learning Disability Team for assessment and intervention.
If you are over the age of 18 and have a learning disability, you can refer yourself. Other people who may refer to our service include relatives or support workers, a doctor or another service such as an advocate or college tutor.
If you want to know more about any of the services we provide, please contact us.
