Other notes

We provide specialist support around communication and / or behaviour with input from the Learning Disabilities Partnership. We facilitate person centred planning through a keyworker system. Where someone identifies an activity we do not currently provide we will always endeavour to see if we can provide it. Activities are outcome focused and aim to promote individual development. We are delivering ASDAN qualifications for people with learning disabilities in moving to independence modules.
