Facilitating Transitions for People with Profound and Complex Learning Difficulties

Facilitating Transitions for People with Profound and Complex Learning Difficulties This article is based on a three‐year research project designed to improve the quality of life of people with profound and complex learning difficulties, particularly during periods of transition. Following a survey of post‐school opportunities, the project adopted an action research approach in four case study sites. The project concluded that it was important not only to support transitions but also to enable individuals to influence and direct change in their own lives. Commitment to increasing local opportunities, combined with a focus on staff development, is fundamental to enhancing the quality of the lives of people with profound and complex learning difficulties and those who support them. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Integrated Care Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This article is based on a three‐year research project designed to improve the quality of life of people with profound and complex learning difficulties, particularly during periods of transition. Following a survey of post‐school opportunities, the project adopted an action research approach in four case study sites. The project concluded that it was important not only to support transitions but also to enable individuals to influence and direct change in their own lives. Commitment to increasing local opportunities, combined with a focus on staff development, is fundamental to enhancing the quality of the lives of people with profound and complex learning difficulties and those who support them.
