Leaving school can be an exciting but challenging time for young people with a learning disability. There are often many options to consider and lots of decisions to make.
The range of opportunities on offer for young people include further education courses, supported employment, and independent living. It is therefore important to ensure young people have the right information and get the right support throughout the transition period.
Disability Rights UK and Mencap have produced an information factsheet, which gives useful information about the transition from school and the type of support that young people with a learning disability can get at this time.
