Abstract

There exists, as yet, no proven service model for people with learning difficulties who are difficult to serve in community settings. This paper describes an initial survey of referrals to separate services for people with a dual diagnosis or behavioural challenges using a structured rating scale. Few significant differences were evident between the populations using the two services, and those which were found related more to the severity of management problems rather than diagnostic criteria. It is suggested that planners and clinicians should avoid producing overlapping services and concentrate instead on unified multidisciplinary assessment and intervention.
