After assessment we can then identify goals for treatment – goals that are meaningful and client-centred. Laura’s therapists are all trained in using Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS), which monitors progress and allows individuals to predict their levels of achievement in their personalised goal plan – a very effective way to track and measure outcomes.
Our programmes of treatment are developed to meet clients’ specific needs. They may include us engaging support workers, as well as rehabilitation assistants to practice achieving goals. Involving families in the strategy and programme itself has also proved to be very effective.
