What this means in practice is that every person that we support has the following:
A one page profile about likes, dislikes and ways to be supported.
Matching profiles – we carefully select staff that have special interests around work with a particular client.
Aims & Outcomes
Strategies to overcome behaviours that may challenge.
How to improve the lives of the people that we support.
We work very closely with NHS Psychology Team regarding our approach and are part of the PBS Champion Network.
As many of the people we support have autism we have also trained senior staff about the importance of using social stories.
This means that where there are issues with transition and understanding we equip staff to deal with these challenges. The training is delivered by The National Autistic Society.
