Helping children with learning disabilities recover from sexual abuse 

The NSPCC has published the results of a formative evaluation of its Letting the Future In for children with learning disabilities (LTFI-LD) service. LTFI-LD builds on Letting the Future In (LTFI), which provides therapeutic support to children who have experienced sexual abuse. Findings include: practitioners with previous LTFI experience were able to deliver a similar service for children with learning disabilities with training and support; more time is needed to deliver LTFI to children with learning disabilities than other children; parents and carers appreciate the flexible approach taken by the NSPCC in delivering the service.
