|dc.description.abstract||BACKGROUND TO THE REVIEW
1. In early 2002, the Scottish Executive embarked on a national review of Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy for children and Speech and Language Therapy for adults with learning disabilities.
2. The review was called in response to a number of concerns:
There has been a significant increase in funding for Speech and Language Therapy for children with records of needs in recent years yet children still find it difficult to access services.
The Riddell Advisory Committee Report 1 into the Education of Children with Severe and Low Incidence Disabilities (SLID) highlighted the problem of shortages of therapists leading to unacceptable waiting times for children with SLID. It raised questions about the current management and organisation of therapists and reported some dissatisfaction with funding mechanisms.
The report of the Learning Disabilities Review, The same as you?2 stated that adults with learning disabilities found it difficult to access Speech and Language Therapy. It recommended that the review of children's therapy recommended by the Riddell Committee 1 should be extended to cover Speech and Language Therapy for adults with learning difficulties.
3. The review, therefore, intended to address issues such as continued shortages of therapists, the management of therapy provision and current funding mechanisms particularly for children's therapy.
4. The review was guided by a steering group made up of representatives from the Scottish Executive Education Department and the Scottish Executive Health Department as well as advisors from a number of stakeholder groups (see Appendix A for membership).
5. Queen Margaret University College provided consultancy to the review team. The University College undertook an investigation of Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy for children and Speech and Language Therapy for adults with learning disabilities as part of the review. The investigation is described in Chapter 4. In addition, a focus group was organised by the Scottish Consortium of Learning Disability to seek the views of adults with learning disabilities who use Speech and Language Therapy. The views of parents were fed into the review by the parent representative on the steering group.||
