Please understand too, that
  • Kathy may smile at you but not recognise who you
    are.
  • Simple decisions or choices may be difficult.
  • Kathy may have difficulty working things out,
    (problem solving) and following instructions.
  • It might be difficult for Kathy to understand the
    consequences of what she does and to learn from
    experience
  • Kathy could have difficulty giving consent
    because she may not understand or remember the
    information.
  • Kathy may also need help to...
  • Understand how other people think, feel and act
    (this can make friendships difficult).
  • Understand and manage her money.
  • Understand time and plan for the future
  • Understand changes especially when people and
    places come and go in her life.

Think about these issues and include any
information you think might add to an
understanding of Kathys abilities to work things
out. (Delete this box)

Interacting with Me
  • If the person you support is hard to reach this
    is how you can start to engage with them (please
    note that this will be individual for each
    person).
  • Think about how you might approach the person you
    support. Do they prefer to approach you first?
  • Think about where you should sit or stand.

Some people are more responsive if you sit or
stand to the side of them.
26
  • Try copying their actions and wait to see how
    they respond.
  • Make it fun!
