This paper aims to summarise the literature on self‐directed support (SDS) in transitions for disabled children and young people moving from children's to adult services.


The literature on SDS and transitions is reviewed. This paper will explore the contribution of research in shaping the implementation of SDS in transitions.


SDS has the potential to encourage creativity at an individual and organisational level that can result in integrated service improvement.


This is the first comprehensive review of research on SDS in Scotland.
