As each package is completely tailored to the aims & needs of each young person, it's impossible to outline how the package would look for each young person. To give some insight into how a package is designed below is an example of 1 term of bespoke package provision:
Alice is an animal loving, 15 year old autistic young person with selective mutism and profound anxiety which means she is unable to leave the house and she struggle with any demands which results in avoidance. Alice also has some learning difficulties. She has a 2 year old springer spaniel called Pal.
Long term, Alice would like to move into a supported living flat with her dog and be able to look after her dog independantly & be able to go out to do her shopping & meet up with other people outside of her home.
This is a fantastic aim which we have broken down into smaller, attainable short term goals, all of which move Alice closer to achieving her long term goal.
Short term goal 1: Take Pal out for a walk to the end of her street with another person.
For this to be achievable, in term 1 we are going to:
Once the above have been completed, we will see if Alice feels able to attempt the walk. If she doesn't, we would work out what barriers remain in place and how we can remove those barriers to enable Alice to achieve this goal.
