TRANSITION TEAM (14-18)
In the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea the Adult Social Services Team for people with Learning Disabilities aged over the age of 18 is called the Learning Disability Team. The Learning Disability Team is a Multi-Disciplinary Team with Professionals from Social Care and Health ie Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Psychiatry, Psychology working together. The Learning Disability Team is similar to the Children with Disabilities Team, in the way it will provide services to meet the Assessed Needs of an individual with Learning Disabilities once they reach 18.
The process of Transition from Children’s Services to Adult Services from the age of 14-18 will be dealt with by the RBKC Transition Team. This is a specialised team where professionals from Social Care and Health plan an individual’s Transition from Children to Adult Services. Full of Life was instrumental in its development after identifying the need for a single assessment team during the often-complex time of Transition.
