There are many reasons that adults with a learning disability may need physiotherapy support and advice throughout their lives. Most people with a learning disability can access mainstream physiotherapy services and healthcare services have a legal obligation to make reasonable adjustments to help people achieve positive outcomes. Specialist learning disability physiotherapists should be available if more support is needed after making reasonable adjustments.
The ACPPLD 'So your next patient has a learning disability' campaign which includes a booklet, poster and animation aims to offer up some simple but practical advice and suggestions on making reasonable adjustments to improve the physiotherapy outcomes for people with a learning disability when they access mainstream physiotherapy services.

Although designed specifically for physiotherapists, we are sure it will also be of use to people with a learning disability and their care network, and other health and social care professionals.
Together we can help more people with a learning disability get the best physiotherapy care.
Developed by the ACPPLD and endorsed by the CSP.
