Cooper 2Cooper 2 provides a robust Autism friendly environment for adults with Autism and a moderate to severe Learning Disability. Patients may be admitted due to previous poor management of their Autistic needs resulting in them exhibiting challenging behaviours.
Cooper 2 provides a structured environment where staff are extensively trained in Autism and use augmented communication to communicate with patients. Staff get to know patients likes and interests and use these to engage with them.
Speech & Language Therapists work with patients to improve their communication skills and develop social stories and augmented communication (such as pictorial timetables, menu plans etc) this means they are informed on what is happening and have more choice and control on how they live their life.
By meeting patients needs and giving them a means to communicate we see a dramatic reduction in challenging behaviours, a reduction in incidents of self-harm and greater levels of engagement, resulting in the ability for the individual to progress onto a community placement.
