This At a glance briefing is for family carers supporting a teenager or young adult with severe learning disabilities and behaviour described as challenging, who is approaching transition to adult services. It will help them understand what they should expect from local services.

The briefing will help them understand what good support and services look like, to enable them to ask for the support they and their family need, and to work in partnership with the professionals who are involved. The way things are done will vary between different areas. There is information at the end about what to do and who to contact for those concerned that their family’s needs are not being met
