Managing Behaviour That Challenges Others

Behaviours which challenges others

People we support at Alderwood LLA experience the world in different ways to the majority of the population. They have often been subjected to restrictive, physical, and or chemical restraints.

All staff working at Alderwood LLA are trained in PROACT-SCIPr-UK® (Positive range of options to avoid crisis and use therapy strategies for crisis intervention and prevention). The focus of this behaviour management programme is to empower staff with the methods of assisting and teaching individuals to maintain self-control and train staff to engage in proactive methods of positive behaviour support.

The PROACT-SCIPr-UK® curriculum supports staff awareness of the needs of persons with developmental disabilities and methods of preventing crisis.

The programme was developed by Loddon School which is the recognised centre in the UK and licenced by BILD.

Staff are trained to restore the individual’s confidence in a non-confrontational manner and always offer a constructive functional activity.

This behaviour management is one part of a broader strategy which incorporates a low arousal environment, coupled with a highly structured learning timetable. The consistent visual approach to support verbal communication addresses the needs of service users experiencing autism and behaviour difficulties that challenge services.

Alderwood LLA’s model of behaviour management has been successful in reducing the frequency of negative behaviours and supporting service users to attain skills that support their everyday needs.

Negative behaviours at the very least reduce and in some cases are no longer apparent.

The focus of Alderwood LLA since the year 2000 has been to strive and work proactively towards intervention-free care.

Alderwood LLA has a number of qualified PROACT-SCIPr-UK® instructors. All Alderwood LLA staff are trained in the principles and use of PROACT-SCIPr-UK®.
