Research is a vital component in the advancement of treatments and therapies for people with learning disabilities. Random trials can give professionals the information they need that new treatments or therapies are effective, so they can then be rolled out to the population. Likewise, research can be vital for highlighting issues for people with learning disabilities, such as the prevalence of disability hate crime, which can lead to policies to tackle such problems.
