LEAP College have created a variety of resources, including instructional videos to enable young people to bake, make a cup of tea, prepare a simple meal and do their washing.
Therapists at LEAP College, Wargrave House realised that in order to support their young people, families needed a basic level of understanding of the interventions they had been using with students in college if they were going to be able to offer support at home. They provided families with a short descriptor of the approach including links to more information where appropriate.
Occupational and speech and language therapists at LEAP College, Wargrave House have worked together to incorporate targets from two disciplines into one set of weekly therapy challenges. This has meant families have had weekly contact with their therapy team but not been bombarded with tasks and asked for multiple sets of feedback. Any feedback received from students or families is shared between the therapists involved.
