A significant number of our residents are diagnosed with mild to moderate or severe learning disabilities. This is common to other diagnoses we treat, but is especially prevalent with residents diagnosed with autism or Down’s syndrome.
Care plans are carefully structured and tailored to respond to the needs and behaviours of each individual, that includes speech therapies, sign language, pictorial evidence and other means of communicating.
All communication and therapeutic interventions are focused on promoting the individual’s ‘activities of choice,’ while de-escalating any anxiety or stressful situations that may arise.
If you would like to know more about our values for autism feel free to contact us.
