The CBF and the Tizard Centre are working in partnership, supported by an advisory group, to seek the views and perspectives of children and adults with severe or profound and multiple learning disabilities.
Everyone has the right to have a say about their own life and about wider issues that impact on them. This includes children, young people and adults with severe and profound and multiple learning disabilities. In reality, we know that these perspectives are seldom heard. This can be because people think it is too difficult, but this is not true, it just requires more skilled, creative and personalised approaches.
The CBF and the Tizard Centre have been developing ways to improve how we seek the views of people with severe and profound learning disabilities. In recognition of the need to get better at seeking the views of children and adults with learning disabilities and with more complex communication challenges, NHS England has funded the Seldom Heard project.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Seldom Heard webpage today, which contains lots more information about the project and related work, including the first in our series of communication blogs.
