All residents in the autistic spectrum have in place very structured programmes for managing their daily lives, routines and activities.
Using pictorial evidence and other communication strategies, staff construct a ‘social story’ with residents, ensuring the concept is fully understood by the resident, who must engage with the process. There is a very strong emphasis on effective and continuous risk management, about which all staff are instructed.
Behaviours and risks are closely monitored at all times, and communicated regularly with social workers and other healthcare professionals so that appropriate external support is undertaken as necessary.
