What is it about?
This paper describes work to change how a special school for people with learning disabilities changed how they worked when helping young people and families plan for leaving school. The school, working with health, education and social services, gave families advanced information about their future support budgets, helped people plan together and for the future and began to change their curriculum to make it more positive and citizen focused.
Why is it important?
This work stands as one of the most progressive developments in special education and personalisation. Before this nobody had been able to get budgets for health, education and social care and integrate them under family control.
