Adults with Learning Disabilities: Implementation of ‘The Same As You?’ Scotland 2009.

Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability, 2010

This Statistics Release provides the seventh set of national figures provided by local authorities in Scotland for adults with learning disabilities.

The statistics in this publication are a result of “The Same As You?? review of services for people with learning disabilities, published in May 2000. The review proposed 29 recommendations for developing learning disability services and set out a programme for change over 10 years.

2009 was the second year statistics were collected on an individual level basis. Anonymised individual records were required for each adult known to the local authority. Strict guidelines have been followed to ensure anonymity and no identifying details have been provided by local authorities. In previous years tables were derived from aggregate totals only.
