Mapping and Evaluating Services for Children with Learning Disabilities and Behaviours that Challenge (MELD)

The MELD study aims to map English community-based services for children with learning disability (LD) and behaviours that challenge (BtC), describe service models, and evaluate outcomes and costs for these service models.

MELD is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Services and Delivery Research programme.

We have received approval from NIHR to proceed to Stage 2 of the MELD Study and will be back soon with further information.
