Learning Disabilities

Valuing People, DOH’s 2001 Whitepaper ‘A New Strategy for Learning Disability for the 21st Century’ defines a Learning Disability as the presence of:

  • A significantly reduced ability to understand new or complex information, to learn new skills (impaired intelligence), with;
  • A reduced ability to cope independently (impaired social functioning);
  • Which started before childhood, with a lasting effect on development.

At Dynamic Social Care Ltd, we work to support and sustain the transition for people with Learning Disabilities to promote their independence, choice and rights. One of our options of support for people with a Learning Disability is supported living. This is where we work closely with private landlords and housing providers to support adults with a Learning Disability to build their chosen home and life whilst receiving support which empowers them and upholds their Wellbeing. In the event that an individual is deemed to lack capacity for specific decisions, we adhere to the principles of the Mental Capacity Act and ensure that Mental Capacity Assessments and Best Interest decisions are completed, taking into consideration least restrictive care practices and the individual’s wishes.
