The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT)
programme aims to provide equitable access to
NICE-recommended psychological therapies to people
from all sectors of the community. There is evidence that
people with mild to moderate learning disabilities can
benefit from the therapies offered by
IAPT services, especially when reasonable adjustments are made to the
way in which these therapies are delivered.

This Positive Practice Guide, which is written by experts
in learning disabilities, summarises the needs of
people with learning disabilities and clearly outlines the
reasonable adjustments that are recommended to ensure
that people with learning disabilities get the maximum
benefit from treatment within an IAPT service.
