Learning disabilities have an impact on a service user’s everyday life, which in turns places specific demands on providers of care who specialise in services that offer support to those with learning disabilities.  Everything from arranging a visit to a shop, to going on a bus, to meeting someone new, can for some be a profoundly difficult undertaking, so appropriately qualified care providers are on hand to offer their expertise and guidance to make the lives of their service users that much more simpler and enjoyable.

Learning disabilities are a broad spectrum and include Down’s Syndrome, Autism, Aspergers Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome and many more.  It is distinct from learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, which do not impact upon intellect.  With the right care and management people with learning disabilities can still lead normal lives. Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) present even greater challenges to the care service, but there are many services throughout the UK equipped to deal with even the most significant of learning disabilities.
