3. Make your comments

If you share similar views with another registered organisation, send a joint response.

Before making your comments, please can you also consider the following in relation to the draft scope:

  • Is the definition of learning disability used in the scope the most appropriate one?
  • We have not used a specific age limit to define ‘older’. Do you: a) think that we should use an age threshold / limit and b) if so what should that age limit / threshold be?
  • What should prompt health and social practitioners to consider whether a person with learning disability is also experiencing issues associated with being an older person?
