One of the main challenges that remains, even when services are successful, is the issue of developing valued friendship networks other than with immediate family and staff, in a society where difference still creates barriers see Richardson and Ritchie, In essence, the innate dignity and value of each individual must be considered at all times.

Using the social model of disability, there should be no limits set on what people with learning disabilities can achieve; the key is finding the support which they need to enable them to achieve these things. An important principle of the social model is that the individual is the expert on their requirements in a particular situation, and that this should be respected, regardless of whether the disability is obvious or not.
