This paper argues that people with learning disabilities are an important potential consumer of ‘personalised technology’ and provides case studies demonstrating some of the ways that technology can help this client group. It also outlines the main barriers to personalised technology becoming a core element of social care planning for people with learning disabilities and concludes that more needs to be done to overcome these barriers and to research and demonstrate the potential benefits to this group.
