Abstract

School leavers with learning disabilities are often lost within service structures as part of the transition process. Many young people lose their social networks at the point of transition to adulthood. This paper provides an insight into the views and aspirations of young people, and highlights the importance of social networks in promoting the psychological well-being of young people with learning disabilities.
