Linda Ward, Robina Mallett, Pauline Heslop and the late Ken Simons set out to discover what happens to young people with learning disabilities as they move from childhood to adulthood

There is a good deal of objective, as well as anecdotal, evidence that young people with learning disabilities (like other young disabled people) encounter considerable difficulties ensuring access to adequate health care at transition (Morris 1999, Pearson et al 1999).
