Abstract

The aim of the research was to scope issues of concern at transition for young people with learning disabilities and mental health problems/challenging behaviour from the perspective of parent carers, using a focus group interview consisting of ten participants, including one facilitator and administrative support. The interview was tape‐recorded, transcribed and thematically coded using Microsoft Word and NVivo. Two case vignettes were used to stimulate the discussion. Several themes emerged from analysis of the transcripts: access to information about rights and the services available for their son or daughter, and conflicts between carers and professionals. The experience of parent carers of people with learning disabilities is still not well understood. By understanding the views and experiences of parent carers, transition can be facilitated and concerned parties can work together to achieve better results.
