Abstract

This paper will discuss a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to service delivery for young people and adults with specific learning difficulties. Influenced by research findings and a gap in service provision, the BUA service has been set up to provide screening, assessment, training and support to young people and adults with specific learning difficulties. The paper will consider the etiology of specific learning difficulties and current practices with particular reference to service provision and best practice models in the delivery of services. The paper will also discuss the BUA Centre’s innovative approach with the Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown and the Dyscovery Centre, Wales in the areas of screening, assessment and training, and in developing best practice teaching methods.
