Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB) May 2023

The Learning Disability Partnership Board met on May 9th 2023. 17 people attended; 11 sent their apologies.

A Speech and Language Therapist from DPT spoke to the Board about Talking Mats. We watched two films on how Talking Mats can be used to support people with learning disabilities and complex needs to take part in structured conversations. Board members thought that Talking Mats would be useful for people with verbal speech as well to ensure that conversations were understood and to aid individual’s memory and understanding.

A Senior Commissioning Officer gave an update on Devon County Council’s revised Vision statement and Living Well in Devon strategy.

Having consulted Board members we have made the decision to move the day and time of the Learning Disability Partnership Board to enable more people with learning disabilities to attend.
