Transition remains a difficult time for many young people with learning disabilities and their families. This document outlines some of the main messages that emerged from research on transition for young people with learning disabilities. It may help practitioners to discuss existing strengths and weaknesses in their own service. This document is not the result of a systematic review. Transition has been the subject of research for a substantial number of years. Inevitably there are many specific findings that may be important for social care services. However, this summary will present only some of the main messages in three distinct but interrelated domains: transition experiences, needs of services users and partnership work. Sections are organised into a list of research findings followed by relevant references. At the end of the document, all references are individually listed and include brief summaries for each research paper included.
