“The Guide brings together in one document why people with learning disabilities may experience difficulties in accessing formal procedures and how people at all levels in the criminal justice system can reduce these difficulties by following a number of good practice tips. We particularly welcome the emphasis on communication, which should make it easier for people with learning disabilities and those who work in the criminal justice system to understand each other.” From Foreword by the Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability
