There is an ever-increasing obligation on child and adolescent mental health services to meet the needs of children and young people with learning disabilities. This practical and concise book will help clinicians, service managers and commissioners to rapidly develop the necessary skills and knowledge in this expanding area of clinical practice. It provides a comprehensive overview of epidemiology, mental health disorders and their clinical presentations, multidisciplinary assessment and intervention, and multi-agency working. It reviews the specific roles of different medical practitioners, such as clinical psychologists and occupational therapists. Plus there are sections on working in partnership with families, and service tiers and models.

At time of writing, this book is also available as a free download:
