  • Participation of learning disabled people in the parliamentary election of
           2019 in the United Kingdom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Elaine James, Chris Hatton, Rob Mitchell
      Abstract: Participation of people with learning disabilities in the United Kingdom (UK) Parliamentary Elections has previously been found to be lower than that of non-learning disabled peers. This paper aims to consider whether an intervention to support the right to take part in democratic and political life may result in increased participation rates. Data were gathered by social workers from 135 learning disabled people about their voter registration and voting in the May 2019 UK local government election. Social workers subsequently ran a promote the vote campaign with this cohort and gathered the same data in respect of the December 2019 UK Parliamentary Election. Following the campaign, there were statistically significant increases in both the proportion of people who registered to vote and in the proportion who voted. People with learning disabilities are more likely to vote if made aware of their rights and supported to do so.

  • Commentary on “Older carers of people with learning disabilities: their
           experiences with local authority assessment processes and personnel”

      Authors: Valerie Gant
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on “Older carers of people with learning disabilities: their experiences with local authority assessment processes and personnel” written by Rachel Forrester-Jones. This commentary considers the experiences of older carers in the context of research, legislative and policy changes over the past 30+ years. The needs of older carers of adults with learning disabilities are well recognised within the (limited) literature. Less attention has been given to practical strategies to identify and support such carers or to their broader family context. This commentary highlights that assessors carrying out carers’ needs assessments should consider whether adults with learning disabilities are providing care to their older relative. The recognition of possible mutual or reciprocal care needs to be acknowledged and appropriate support offered.

      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on the article ‘‘Participation of Learning Disabled People in the Parliamentary Election of 2019 in the United Kingdom’’. Personal experience of advocating in Australia for the rights of people with learning disabilities to vote and to receive the necessary support to do so. People with learning disabilities have persistently been excluded from political participation. This is an abuse of their human rights. There are many barriers to the political participation of people with learning disabilities, and advocacy on a number of fronts will be necessary to achieve change.

  • Commentary on “Exploring new ways of thinking about and developing staff
           practice: the role of modes of thinking”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lex Wijnroks
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on “Exploring new ways of thinking about and developing staff practice: the role of modes of thinking” written by Roy Deveau, John Ockenden and Petra Bjorne. The commentary considers the consistency of Kahneman’s model of thinking fast and slow with brain research. The thinking styles of staff undoubtedly influence their responses to people with learning disabilities. Although Kahneman’s model provides a heuristic approach to tackling prejudicial and biased thinking, it risks incomplete solutions through bypassing some of the factors contributing to staff behaviour. This commentary concludes that Kahneman’s model is not completely consistent with knowledge about how the brain is organized. This should be regarded as a limitation of any model seeking to explain decision-making.

  • Political engagement in the 2019 UK general election of patients with
           autism and/or a learning disability detained in a psychiatric hospital

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Richard Armstrong
      Abstract: This case study aims to describe how patients with autism and/or a learning disability detained in a psychiatric hospital were supported to register and vote in the 2019 UK general election. A speech and language therapist supported patients to register and vote. Data on the number of patients who registered and voted are reported as well as feedback from patients about their experiences. Forty-two per cent of patients registered to vote; 27% did not want to register; and 31% could not understand the information provided and/or state a clear preference because of the severity of their cognitive and communication difficulties. Fifteen per cent of patients voted and were all first-time voters. This study demonstrates that it is possible to support significant numbers of autistic and learning disabled patients in a psychiatric hospital to register for and vote in a parliamentary election.

  • Older carers of people with learning disabilities: their experiences with
           local authority assessment processes and personnel

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rachel Forrester-Jones
      Abstract: Amongst other actions the Care Act 2014 emphasised the duties of local authorities (LA) to assess the needs of carers, as well as those they care for and to meet all eligible needs for support. This paper aims to report the findings of a study which explored the experiences of older carers of people with learning disabilities as they navigated LA assessment processes and personnel. Using an explorative design, 21 older carers were interviewed about their experiences. Interview transcripts were qualitatively analysed. Three main themes were identified, namely, needs assessments as ambitions, not outcomes; the effects of funding-cuts projected onto carers; and challenges with social care personnel. The study findings attracted a high level of engagement with public awareness and mainstream news and social media. The LA also immediately responded with interventions to address some of the findings, including carer “drop-in” sessions. They are also adapting their carer’s needs assessment processes as a result of the study. It is hoped that the issues raised will be of interest to other social care providers and practitioners.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Roy Deveau, John Ockenden, Petra Björne
      Abstract: Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman’s work on modes of “thinking” provides a comprehensive text which is little explored in respect of work with people who have an intellectual or developmental disability. This paper aims to explore the potential of this work to change staff development and practice. Key themes from Thinking Fast, and Slow (Kahneman, 2011) are described and applied to current staff practice. Modes of thinking are relevant and important to understanding and improving manager and staff practice. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first attempt to describe and understand staff thinking and practice using Kahneman’s ideas.

      Authors: Mitzi Waltz
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on the article “Political engagement in the 2019 UK general election of patients with autism and/or a learning disability detained in a psychiatric hospital”. This paper considers the wider issue of political participation by persons with disabilities, especially those whose freedom is restricted. Access to voting rights remains problematic for many disabled people. It is crucial that this basic form of political participation is ensured, but there is further to go. This paper suggests the need for greater attention to and support for disabled peoples’ right to political participation, including people with learning disabilities and autism.

  • What are the experiences of professionals working with parents with
           learning disabilities' A meta-ethnography

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Agnieszka Pytlowana, Biza Stenfert Kroese
      Abstract: It has been recommended that social, health and other relevant professionals work collaboratively to support parents with learning disabilities (LD) and their children. A number of qualitative studies have investigated the experiences of professionals who work with parents with LD. A synthesis of these experiences has not as yet been produced, and therefore, the purpose of this paper is to review how professionals experience working with parents with LD to inform practice guidelines on how parents with LD can be supported most effectively. A systematic search took place using five databases and 15 peer-reviewed papers were identified based on the relevant inclusion and exclusion criteria. The quality of each included paper was systematically evaluated. Meta-ethnography was used to synthesise the qualitative data from the identified studies. The synthesis offered six themes: concerns about knowledge and experience, the importance of and difficulties with available support, the importance of and challenges with liaison with and between professionals, differences in power, conflicting priorities – parents or children', the personal impact on professionals. The results are discussed in the context of previous research. Recommendations for future research and practice innovation are made.

  • Building capable environments using practice leadership

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Linda Hume, Nadia Khan, Martin Reilly
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to outline the development and piloting of a training intervention for social care staff that uses a capable environments framework to improve the quality of staff support. A single case study was used to evaluate changes in the quality of staff support and in levels of engagement and challenging behaviour for one of the individuals supported. The case study demonstrates the usefulness of the capable environments framework as a model for training and development of support planning. Staff provided more positive interaction and support to the individual, who displayed increased participation in activities and reductions in the occurrence and episodic severity of challenging behaviour. Capable environments is a systematic, theoretically-driven approach, which is focussed on the quality of support design and provision for people with intellectual disability. The use of such a framework as an intervention assists staff in the provision of effective personalised supports, a foundation for positive behaviour support.

      Authors: Gillian MacIntyre, Ailsa Stewart
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on Pytlowana and Stenfert Kroese’s article on the experiences of professionals working with parents with learning disabilities by exploring challenges and good practice in this area. Key areas of practice were identified for further exploration by drawing on research studies with parents with learning disabilities. While there is growing evidence of good practice around working with parents with learning disabilities, a number of challenges around communication and relationship-based practice remain. The paper recommends further training and education for those working in this complex area of practice. The paper adds value by bringing together evidence from across a number of studies to highlight good practice.

  • The experiences of older carers of people with learning disabilities: “I

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rachel Forrester-Jones
      Abstract: Because people with learning disabilities (LD) are living longer, their family carers are likely to continue their caring role for longer. This study aims to explore the experiences of older carers of people with LD. In total, 16 interviews with older carers were carried out and analysed qualitatively. Three main themes emerged from the data: “transition to retirement is a misnomer”; “impact of caring role”; and “fears for the future”. Previous studies have not focussed on the specific experiences of “older” carers and their situation risks going unnoticed. Their experiences should be acknowledged by services and society and meaningful support provided.

      Authors: Jan Sunman
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on the article by Rachel Forrester-Jones on the experiences of older carers of people with learning disabilities. The commentary reflects on the themes identified in the original article, comparing its findings to the lived experiences of those taking part in older carers’ projects in Oxfordshire, England. Similar broad themes were identified in both samples. Given these findings, the extent to which matters have changed, since the Valuing People work on older carers is considered. The paper discusses policy and practice implications to improve the quality of life of older carers and their families and explores how the voice of older carers can be strengthened to enable them to shape practice and policy.

      Authors: Edwin Jones
      Abstract: This paper aims to present a conceptual viewpoint highlighting the utility of active support in implementing capable environments and to extend this by presenting a three-tiered preventative model of positive behavioural support (PBS) in UK health and social care. Provision of a commentary on “Building capable environments using practice leadership” by Linda Hume, Nadia Khan and Martin Reilly. Capable environments and active support should be key, universal and essential PBS tier one supports in UK health and social care. Training staff in Active Support and developing practice leadership help implement capable environments. The three-tiered PBS model was recently proposed by Leitch et al. (2020) and is worthy of further debate and refinement with the involvement of stakeholders. It has several practical implications including refocussing efforts on early intervention to get tier one supports implemented effectively in recognition that PBS is much wider than intense tier three supports. It could reinforce and motivate existing providers of quality support and indicate where and how other providers can commence the process of implementing PBS. Future research could consider the effectiveness of applying implementation science to the field of learning disabilities and PBS in particular.

  • De-fusing and re-fusing face-to-face encounters involving autistic persons
           in Hong Kong

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alex Cockain
      Abstract: This article documents accounts of the tactics parents and siblings of autistic persons in Hong Kong deploy to manage social encounters. This article aims to consider the impact of such tactics and their enmeshment with factors that combine to limit satisfactory outcomes and outlines a project intent upon contriving dialogue between persons. This qualitative project elicited stories and accounts (or narratives) produced by persons involved in encounters involving autistic persons. This project also intervened in these encounters. Persons involved in social encounters are de-fused, in the sense of being disconnected. The emotions persons experience through these encounters (e.g. and especially anxiety) remain hidden. Dialogue has the capacity to re-fuse, not only reconnecting but also rejecting unsatisfactory arrangements. The dialogue produced in the article may extend beyond the specific circumstances and persons considered, potentially reducing the barriers and distances between autistic persons and others.

      Authors: Karl Nunkoosing
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on Alex Cockain’s article “De-fusing and re-fusing face-to-face encounters involving autistic persons in Hong Kong”. The commentary considers the issues raised in Cockain’s article primarily from a focus on Goffman’s concept of “stigma”. Cognitive, emotional and behavioural components of stigma are examined and its wider relevance considered. There has been less research on the stigma of learning disability than on that of mental health, despite a very early study of learning disability (Edgerton, 1967) using the concept only four years after the publication of Goffman’s (1963) seminal work. A number of points of relevance of stigma are identified including to social role valorisation, visible and invisible stigmas, the concept of “passing”, microaggression, disablism and labelling. The commentary illustrates the relevance of the concept of stigma to other aspects of learning disability and disability scholarship.
