As demands on learning disability services grow and client waiting times get longer there is increasing interest in the use of screening tools (Bliss 2002). This pressure on services, combined with a move towards needs-led service provision (Scottish Executive 2000), can result in referrals that fail to meet the criteria for learning disability. Clinicians may then feel under pressure to become gatekeepers for their service.
