Aims and Scope

Tizard Centre logo.Tizard Learning Disability Review (TLDR) is an accessible, readable and challenging high-quality source of information and intelligence for those working in the field of learning/intellectual disabilities.

TLDR is unique in providing peer-reviewed content that bridges the experience of managers, practitioners, academics, researchers, users and carers to establish a constructive dialogue between different perspectives.

Distinctive features of the content include:

  • Invited commentary papers in each issue, providing evidence-based and topical reflections from experts in learning, intellectual and developmental disabilities
  • Drawing explicit links between theory and practice including accounts of research with clear implications for practice and practice innovations of broader relevance
  • A primary focus on the UK but also drawing on and of relevance to international experience and practice, recognising the scope of international learning and development
  • Provides evidence and ideas to help plan, manage and deliver excellence in services.

TLDR is published in partnership with The Tizard Centre, University of Kent, UK.

"Tizard Learning Disability Review reflects the dynamic link between research, policy and practice exemplified in the work of Jack Tizard and now adapted to meet the challenges of the 21st century when despite good policies and legislation, implementation remains poor and patchy. Jack saw that debates about improvements in services needed to be led by people with intellectual disabilities and would have welcomed their later work as equal partners with politicians and policy makers in creating the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and as informed advocates for its implementation. There has never been a better time to translate policy to practice." Peter Mittler, Founding Director, Hester Adrian Research Centre and Dean of Education, Manchester University, Past President of Inclusion International and UN Consultant, UK.
