Abstract

This paper briefly summarises the main Welsh policy principles that apply to all people with learning disabilities, including those with mental health needs or severe challenging behaviour. We briefly review progress in supporting people with complex behavioural needs, reflect on areas where development in practice has not lived up to policy rhetoric and also examine the consequences of this policy to practice gap. We then describe current barriers to further service development. Finally, we suggest a number of changes that are necessary for the current inadequacies to be resolved.
