In 2002 MacIntyre received funding from the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund for a three year project, looking at the difficulties experienced by people with learning disabilities when they move from children’s to adult services. The first stage involved a series of five focus groups around the country, involving young people with a learning disability and their families. The outcome was a resource pack providing information about the transition from school years to adult life for people with a learning disability. As a result, MacIntyre developed a transition model called My Way. MacIntyre My Way is a model that supports young people making the transition from children’s services to the adult life, focussing on self-directed support with the help of a dedicated facilitator, assisting young people and their families to design and be in control of their support arrangements, and ultimately achieving their aspirations for their adult life.
