Profound Learning Disabilities

Yarrow’s work in this area is all about individuals being introduced to new experiences – the same kinds of experiences any of us might have. To this end, Yarrow focuses both on achieving a good interface between relevant professionals and on creating a stimulating environment with caring staff. Together, we observe how individuals make choices, recognising that everyone has the potential to communicate, however limited. Once we’ve discovered the person’s communication capacity, we work towards enhancing it so that they can tell us which of their new experiences they like and don’t like.
