Personalisation and Learning Disability

(Published by OLM Pavilion, February 2011)

This handbook presents a collection of 16 chapters written by various contributors on personalisation specifically for those working with people with learning disabilities. It gives readers an insight into what personalisation means in practice.

The handbook is divided into three sections:

  • Part one: Leaders by experience
  • Part two: Creating the conditions
  • Part three: The broader picture – What next for personalisation

The three sections consider the experiences and reflections of individuals and groups who are directing their own support, and how self-directed support changes the responsibilities, roles and relationships of people surrounding the person. They also consider the changing system and what needs to happen for personalised services to succeed.
