Solutions for Learning Disabilities

Key information for health, housing and social care professionals and carers.


There are approximately 1.5 million people with a learning disability in the UK. Connected Healthcare technology such as telecare, assistive technology and telehealth can enable people with a learning disability to live with greater independence, choice and control, both at home and when out in the community.


Technology can make a difference to people with all kinds of learning disabilities, whether their difficulties are relatively mild or more profound and if they are living in formal care settings or more independently in the community.

From managing risks such as fires or falling, to aiding communication and helping to deliver greater privacy or dignity, technology can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives.

As more is understood about learning disabilities it is clear that enabling technology has the potential to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities, and the ability of our health, housing and social care systems to manage their needs effectively.
