Planning and Support for People with Intellectual Disabilities

Issues for Case Managers and Other Professionals

Gary W. LaVigna,

Planning and Support for People with Intellectual Disabilities: Issues for Case Managers and Other Professionals
 
 

Thought-provoking, well-written, and offering a range of fresh and sometimes challenging perspectives, Planning and Support should be essential reading for people working in the field of learning disabilities. Highly recommended.'

- Involve Magazine

The authors outline the skills needed and common issues in case management practice across a range of people with different disabilities at different stages of their life. Emphasising the importance of taking a rights-based approach to supporting people with learning disabilities, the authors argue that effective case management needs to be individualised and carried out in partnership with the individual and their family in order to draw up a lifestyle plan that meets their many needs, including employment, education, vocational training, therapy and behaviour support.

The book includes chapters on inter-agency and cross-sector negotiation and collaboration, balancing rights and protection, listening to individuals and families, communication, optimising health outcomes, approaches to behaviour support, ethical decision-making and reflective supervision, and the text is complemented by case studies throughout.

An essential reference for practitioners, the book is also an invaluable guide for policy makers, researchers and students, nurses, carers, and people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
