This book examines new developments in provisions for people with learning disabilities. It establishes the current network of services as a base and reduces aspects of the NHS, Community Care Act (1990) and Disabled Persons Act (1986) to terminology accessible to professionals and others engaged in this area. Building on "Services for the Mentally Handicapped in Britain" (Malin, Race and Jones, 1980), it includes additional chapters such as advocacy/empowerment and recreation and leisure. Other parts of the book consider in more detail concepts engendered in the new legislation: care-management and assessment, quality and inspection, and inter-agency planning. The book aims to provide a broad review of material based on research and local developments in deinstitutionalization and community care, residential, day care, voluntary and educational services. It should be of interest to students and professional staff in psychology, teaching, medicine, nursing, social work and the voluntary sector concerned with people with learning disabilities.
