Advocacy is a critically important element in the development of effective services with a learning disability. It is seen by many as the critical link between theory and practice in creating a truly inclusive society. This text presents an in-depth examination of the historical, legal and philosophical contexts within which advocacy services have developed. The kind of professional and practical issues and problems confronting those running and using advocacy services are discussed, and the role of advocacy is examined. Chapters covering advocacy with families and with people with communication difficulties are included to contain information for practitioners. A survey of the development of advocacy services in the US, Canada, Sweden, Australia and New Zealand provides an international perspective.
