dc.description.abstractThe white paper "Valuing People" committed speech and language therapy services to the promotion of choice, inclusion, independence and civil rights. This article describes how the Means, Reasons and Opportunities model was developed and used for teaching staff working with people with learning disabilities. Five core roles for the service were identified as: 1. Managing health needs; 2. Making information accessible; 3. Using shared means of communication; 4. Promoting reasons for communication; and 5. Creating opportunities for communication. Developing communication policies and strategies to address these issues was essential for the individual, those in his/her immediate environment, and the local community. The Means, Reasons, Opportunities model was used to introduce the idea of "real-world understanding" to distinguish the differences between verbal and situational understanding, and introduce the concept of functional understanding. This has been used as a framework for inclusive or total communication as part of the communication strategy across Nottinghamshire. The use of inclusive communication is increasingly recognised as best practice and effective use of speech and language therapy services.en
