Day Services for People with Learning Disabilities

Series: Case Studies for Practice (No. 7)
Paperback
In this volume which updates and replaces Day Services for People with Mental Handicaps, Day Services for People with Severe Handicaps and Towards Independent Living, case studies are presented to illustrate the functioning of community care to provide services for people with learning difficulties/disabilities and with intellectual and multiple disabilities. Further chapters give consideration to the issues concerned with the promotion of independent living. This new updated volume will cover many of the issues introduced in the previous editions, whilst also examining practice in the light of the impact of the new community care legislation on service provision. The book will be of especial interest to social workers, students of social work, and to residential day care and support staff and their trainers.
