Understanding that individuals living with ASD do not adapt well to change, our specialist Person-Centred care plans emphasise the importance of consistency and routine in the life of the individual. Working with the person receiving care, we develop a care plan that allows them to develop coping skills to manage their own behaviour, while aiming to advance their specific goals, whether that be developing skills for work or accessing the community.
In caring for those with ASD, we work with local Community Learning Disabilities Teams. This is greatly beneficial for an individual with ASD, as it can provide them with access to services such Sensory Assessment, Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapist Support, as well as community activities.
As those living with ASD can find any change to their lives difficult, our use of Social Stories can help prepare individuals for change. A Social Story is a tool used to introduce a concept or narrative to an individual with ASD, with simple text and illustrations, which can help them feel more comfortable when presented with the change.
