……………that’s exactly what we have been doing recently.
The support teams within the Liaise homes have been “Focusing on the positive in those we support”. The use of the ASDAN Towards Independence Programme has enabled the homes to “Create a positive learning culture” in which everyone is aware of “clear, shared goals” with regard to individual’s interests and consequent learning opportunities. The consistent, regular practice of these clear, shared goals over the last year has resulted in a number of individuals achieving their ASDAN Awards in their areas of special interest – namely cooking, art and sensory activities.
Recently, Andrea Ede, Learning and Development Manager, and Linzi Holt, ASDAN Co-ordinator, joined these learners in Applelea, Cornview, Sansa House and Baytrees and presented them with their ASDAN certificates – some rather lovely cakes were also shared!
There was a joint celebration. This learning would not take place without the consistency of learning support from the support teams in the homes. To show Liaises’ appreciation of the commitment co-workers have put into getting ASDAN running in their homes, co-worker teams also received certificates.
