Reasonable adjustments for people with a learning disability

Guides on how reasonable adjustments should be made to health services and adjustments to help people with learning disabilities to access services.

Under the Equality Act 2010, public sector organisations must make changes in their approach or provision to ensure that services are accessible to disabled people as well as everybody else.

This series of guidance shares information, ideas and good practice in making reasonable adjustments for people with learning disabilities in specific health service areas. It is aimed at health and social care professionals and family members who provide support for, or plan services used by, people with learning disabilities. There is also an easy-read summary for each service area.
