There are around 1.5 million people in the UK with a learning disability and 700,000 with autism. Polly Braden has worked with MacIntyre*, a leading national charity in the field, to show the ways in which it works with the children and adults that it supports. Her photographs look at the everyday moments, achievements and milestones. The subject is complex but the aim is simple: to highlight everyday interactions and life-changing experiences. These are stories about the barriers faced in life, but they are also inspiring, often filled with moments of achievement in things which once seemed difficult if not impossible from finding employment or using public transport to gaining a measure of independence, graduating from high school or getting married. Great Interactions looks to engage decision-makers and the wider public to ensure that people with a learning disability receive the same opportunities as anyone else. The book includes a discussion between Polly Braden and David Campany as well as extensive interviews and an afterword by Sophie Howarth. (MacIntyre is a leading national charity providing learning, support, education and care to over 1000 children, young people and adults with learning disabilities, complex needs and autism, and their families across England and Wales. In 2016 it celebrates its 50th anniversary.)
