Learning Disabilities

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, which includes speech therapies, sign language, pictorial evidence and other means of communicating.

Bespoke Communication and Theraputic Interventions

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.
