Attending court can be a confusing and sometimes frightening process and this can be exacerbated if you have a learning disability. This easy read leaflet has been produced by HM Courts & Tribunals Service and the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust learning disability staff to explain the magistrates’ court process to people with learning disabilities.
The information contained in the leaflet has been approved to be used across the country, not just in the local area and is aimed at providing information to all those involved supporting people with learning disabilities through the court process.
It uses a photo story to identify the steps someone due to appear in court may have to go through, explaining the roles of the professionals they might meet. Further information about the leaflet is available from the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Learning Disability Forensic Support Service – email: firstname.lastname@example.org

I notice on your links above that you have my e-mail as michel.swinswood etc etc. Unfortunately it should be mick.swinswood etc etc.
I was beginning to wonder why I was not receiving any queries about the leaflet!
I hope this is of some help
Thanks for letting us know Mick. I’ve updated your email address. Prepare yourself for an avalanche of emails!
Thanks André, looking forward to responses
I am a student looking at relationship among learning disability academic self-concept and academic performance.Would you please help me with some appropriate research instruments
Hi there, thanks for your comment. I wonder if you are concerned with what in the UK we would describe as specific learning difficulties which in the US would be described as learning disabilities? If so, this would be outside our area of interest. If not, and you are concerned with what would be described in the international literature as intellectual disabilities then, if you could narrow down your area of interest a little, we may be able to run a brief search for you to see what we can find. But, I would also strongly urge you to make use of your local health library service as the information scientists there could help you create a search strategy.
