   schema:description "The practical implications for care delivery are clearly identified and there are useful summaries of key points. By linking theory to practice in a novel way, Learning Disabilities enables professionals and students from a variety of backgrounds to apply theoretical concepts to different areas of their practice. The book will be of special value to courses in nursing and social work and will also be an effective resource for trained professionals in their day-to-day practice."@en ;

   schema:description "Learning Disabilities highlights the complexities which arise in working with people with a learning disability, focusing on three main themes - social policy and service provision, judgements, and specific interventions. The authors discuss the problems raised by ideas such as consumerism and choice, control and empowerment, informed choice, and professional power. Each chapter includes an introduction to and explanation of the relevant concepts and detailed case studies show how these relate to practice."@en ;
