A practical guide to help people with learning disabilities achieve independence says they want to live 'ordinary' lives and make their own decisions. The guide says that quality of life for people with learning disabilities would be improved by more information and support, more control over their money, and a recognition that lack of resources reduces the quality of services. King's Fund project officer Andrea Whittaker, author of the guide, said 'people with learning difficulties must have equal access to the opportunities everyone else gets'.
