NICE has released the draft guideline and supporting evidence on learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges service design for consultation.

This guideline: 

  • Covers services for people with a learning disability and behaviour that challenges, and their family members and carers. 
  • Recommends providing a range of services, including specialist support, in the community to minimise the need for inpatient admissions. 
  • Promotes a lifelong approach to supporting people which emphasises prevention and early intervention. 

Recommendations:

  • Cover services for children, young people and adults across health and social care.

The guideline should be read alongside NICE’s clinical guideline on challenging behaviour and learning disabilities: prevention and interventions.
