developing services for leaning disability

9 posts in this topic

can v start a new topic

i think

'developing services for learning disability is a hot tpoic'

i will start

introduction

the services for people with learning disability have come a long way in the last 30 years since the movement away from institutions started. but still as the prime minister mentioned in recent white paper ' valuing people' some people find themselves pushed to the margins of our society. And almost all encounter prejudice, bullying, insensitive treatment and discrimination at some time in their lives. the government has recognised the need for change and taken a step forward by it announcing its white paper 'valuing people'. aim is to integrate different agencies and provide comprehensive care.Comprehensive health care services respond effectively to the needs of their patients not just in terms of treatment of health problems but also by addressing overall well-being by understanding, informing, involving, counselling and respecting the individual.and also the services must be aware of the wide range of needs to which they must be able to respond while treating each person as an individual.

guys this is my first ever essay, and i think its too long and all over the place. so please help me to correct myself and any suggestions as to how an intro should be??

Just preliminary thoughts.

For an intro this is slightly big I think. However, your paragraph has sufficient material to be split into intro and conclusion.
